The England Iconic will be moving to his office as a Rangers coach on this very day, despit his unvieling at the beginging of last month.
Gerrard has already been busy since his appointment as manager at the Ibrox Stadium, helping the club in permanently signing Jamie Murphy, Allan McGregor and Scott Arfield and is still looking for to his first match for the Scottish giants ahead of the pre-season tour in three weeks.
June 1 is the day I have been waiting for and I am absolutely desperate to get started officially in my role as the manager of Rangers Football Club,” he told the club website via Scotsman. “Just saying that excites and motivates me so much.
“Although the players won’t report back from their breaks until in the month I am looking forward to meeting them and also welcoming some new faces to this fantastic club. “Along with Mark (Allen) and my backroom team we have already been working on our plans and strategy for the new season.
“We know what we want to achieve and we also know what will be required to meet the challenges ahead, but we will be ready.
“Over the next week or so, I will be engaged in work and activities outwith Auchenhowie which I hope will be to the benefit of the club.
“We will also be putting the final pieces in place for our pre-season training camp in Spain.”
Assessing the training facilities at Ibrox, Steven Gerrard said: “Having already taken the opportunity to assess our Auchenhowie base and also facilities at Ibrox, we are focusing now on being ready for our first real challenge, a Europa League qualifying tie in early July.
“Everything we do will be for them. It’s time now… let’s go.”
Last season, Rangers were able to secure a qualifying spot in the Europa League next season, which will see them compete in the qualifying tie to be held in July immediately after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
