Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has suggested to The Scottish Sun that he could make a move for former Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard.

Gerrard is on the books of Major League Soccer outfit Los Angeles Galaxy at the moment and has a contract until December 2016.

Rodgers and the former England international worked together at Premier League club Liverpool, and the newly-appointed Celtic manager has suggested that he could bring the 35-year-old to the Scottish Premiership giants one day in the future.

“Steven was outstanding for me as a captain, so maybe one day,” Rodgers told The Scottish Sun regarding a move for Gerrard. “You want to work with the best people — and he’s certainly one of the best.”

Gerrard is one of the greatest players in Liverpool and Premier League history, and he can still continue to play for at least two more years.

Signing the Englishman even in January 2017 would be a massive coup for the Bhoys, and perhaps the Glasgow giants should look into the possibility of securing his services.

The former Liverpool captain would add experience to Celtic’s midfield, and he would also be a blockbuster signing.

The presence of Gerrard at Celtic would raise the profile of the Scottish Premiership and would attract more viewers and interest.
