The Liverpool legend will take charge of his first game on Friday as League One Bury come to Ibrox, and it'll be a chance for the Rangers players to show supporters how they've been faring under his regime so far.
The 38-year-old was announced as the club's new manager in late April, and has been working hard to prepare his team for the new season in the hope of challenging Celtic for major honours.
Gerrard may have been working hard, but his former manager Rodgers, and main rival now as Celtic boss, has warned the former midfielder of the challenging nature of football management.
As quoted by the Liverpool Echo, he said: "Steven is someone that I know well, and he has decided to take his first steps into management at Rangers, and I’m sure he’ll enjoy the challenge and the test of it all. So, it will be fun.
"Wherever you go as a first-time manager, it is always a test, and of course he’s gone to a big club at Rangers, so that will be a test, but I’m sure it’s one he will enjoy.
"As a player you are always looking after yourself and making sure that everything was okay. But as a manager you have to look after everything."
Following Friday's friendly contest with Bury, Rangers will then face Macedonian minnows FK Shkupi in the first round of qualifying for the 2018/19 Europa League, something Gerrard will surely be keen to get on his CV.
Perhaps the most enticing date of note for Scottish football fans will be September 1, which is the first Old Firm Derby of the season - where Gerrard will surely be looking prove that he can handle the 'culture shock' Rodgers has warned him about.
