Rangers manager Steven Gerrard on Friday agreed on a two-year extension with the Scottish football club until 2024. 

Liverpool legend Gerrard, 39, joined Rangers in the summer of 2018 for his first managerial post.

"From the moment I met Steven, I could tell that he was the right man to help us to drive this club forward on the pitch. He has an elite mentality and that is exactly what I was looking for," Rangers Chairman Dave King said in a statement post on the club's website.

Gerrard, for his part, said: "When Dave King approached me about the possibility of extending my contract with Rangers, it was a very easy decision to make because I’m very happy and feel that we are building something special together at the Club."

Rangers are in the second place in the Scottish Premiership, two points behind the leader Celtic.

On Thursday, Rangers also reached the last 32 in the UEFA Europa League after drawing 1-1 with Young Boys to clinch second spot in Group G.
