Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Graham Roberts has revealed that he would like to see Steven Gerrard appointed as the club’s new head coach.

Roberts has admitted that he has been impressed with the work which Gerrard has done at his old club with the 40-year-old having guided them to their first top-flight success in ten years having gone the whole of the Scottish Premiership campaign unbeaten.

Tottenham are yet to appoint a successor for Jose Mourinho, who was sacked by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy along with his backroom staff last month.

Mourinho wasted no time in taking up his next managerial opportunity having been confirmed as the new head coach of AS Roma, however, Spurs haven’t been so swift with the club instead having named Ryan Mason to see out the season.

A number of names have been linked with the vacant hot seat in North London including Gareth Southgate, Roberto Martinez, Maurizio Sarri, Erik ten Tag and Brendan Rodgers (Telegraph).

Roberts, who played for the Ibrox outfit for two campaigns believes that Gerrard will remain north of the border next season.

He told FootballFanCast: You’ve got Steven Gerrard at Rangers.

“I think he’ll stay there but he’s done absolutely unbelievable. He would be a great choice.”
