Goal have claimed that Rangers made an enquiry in the summer to sign Liverpool teenager Adam Lewis, after working under Steven Gerrard during the Gers manager's time as Liverpool Under-18's coach.

Liverpool legend Gerrard left Merseyside in the summer after working as the club's Under-18 manager to take over at Scottish Premiership outfit Rangers, where he has since impressed in his first 20 league and cup outings.

Gerrard signed attacking midfielder Ovie Ejaria and winger Ryan Kent on season-long loans from Liverpool, while former Reds star Jon Flanagan also moved to Ibrox on a free transfer.

 

Now, it has been claimed that Gerrard made an enquiry to sign 18-year-old Lewis on loan, after working with the one-time England Under-20 international during his time as Liverpool Under-18's boss.

Lewis is a regular in Liverpool's Under-23 side after gaining promotion to the second string following 42 appearances with the Under-18's, in which he produced 13 assists and scored four goals from the left side of defence.

He has continued that kind of return from defence with the Under-23's, scoring once and creating three in 15 outings. No surprises then that Gerrard was interested in signing the Liverpool-born starlet.

Since then, Gerrard brought in Borna Barisic from NK Osijek and though there seems to be little room at left-back for Lewis, the Rangers manager is likely to remain a keen admirer.
