What did Steven Gerrard do after retiring from football?

After retiring from football, Gerrard worked as a coach in the Liverpool development system and led the club's under-18 squad in 2017-18 before taking over as manager of Scottish Premiership club Rangers in 2018-19. He is currently acting as an assistant to Kenny Dalglish at Scottish Championship side Greenock Morton.

Gerrard has been praised for his work with young players during his time at Liverpool, and he has also received criticism from some fans for becoming involved in managerial disputes at Ibrox and LA Galaxy. However, he has never lost a game in charge and remains one of the most successful coaches in British football history.

He signed a two-year contract with Rangers in June 2019 after agreeing a deal with the club earlier that month. The contract will see him remain at Ibrox until at least the summer of 2020.

Gerrard was born on January 4, 1984 in West Derby, Liverpool. He is only the second player from Merseyside to have their number 8 retired by Liverpool, following in the footsteps of Phil Neal who had his number 5 taken up by the club in 1979. Gerrard made his senior debut for Liverpool against Wimbledon in the First Division on April 16, 2003, when he came on as a 67th-minute substitute for Peter Crouch.
