Brendan Rodgers: it should have been eight goals

Danny Murphy says Steven Gerrard is waiting for assurances over his transfer budget before he agrees to takeover the manager's job at Rangers.

Celtic secured a seventh-consecutive Scottish Premiership title by thrashing bitter rivals Rangers.

"Now, after a couple of bad results he's been thrown to the garbage and I think it's very discourteous".

Murty had admitted to Sky Sports prior to kick-off at Celtic Park that speculation surrounding links to Gerrard and the managerial position had affected preparations for Sunday's crunch fixture.

Celtic are now just two shy of the record of nine Scottish titles in a row they already share with Rangers.

Then, prior to Sunday's league game, it emerged that former England captain Gerrard, now an academy coach with Liverpool, was the front-runner to be Rangers boss next season. "The guy went in there and he's done his very best in what looks like, from the outside, to be very trying and hard circumstances".

Murty twice stepped up as caretaker boss in 2017 and was then handed the job for five months after the club's failed pursuit of Derek McInnes.

"I know he always wanted to be a manager, I know that from my time working closely with him at Liverpool".

Wednesday seemed like a lighter volume day for MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM ), but it might not be harder to recover from. Cerebellum GP LLC bought a new position in shares of MGM Resorts International during the 4th quarter valued at about $126,000.

"I suppose as a football club Rangers can't be trying to get someone like Stevie, who is young, hungry and ambitious, to go there and compete and sell him a dummy".

"I feel a loyalty to them to ensure we keep moving the club forward and keep progressing".

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was also a happy camper.

Speaking to talkSPORT host Jim White, Hodgson said: "The tip I would give is to make certain you do your due diligence with regards to the job before you decide to take it".

Murphy played alongside Gerrard for Liverpool between 1997 and 2004 and remains in contact with the 37-year-old.

It wouldn't be a surprise to see Rangers go in a new direction though, with Steven Gerrard rumoured to be on the verge of taking over.

"I love this club and if the decision was up to me I would like to stay, but I can only do so much".
