STEVEN GERRARD has been discussing his Rangers transfer plans.

Rangers named the former Liverpool and England midfielder as their new manager today and he signs on a four-year deal.

The former England skipper, who has coached Liverpool's Under-18s after hanging up his boots two years ago, replaces Graeme Murty for his first role in club management.

Gerrard will start his new post in June and the 37-year-old will be making changes to his squad this summer.

"We will have to wait and see on that, but that ball has already started rolling with myself, Mark [Allen] and Andy [Scoulding]," he said.

"There will be changes in personnel, of course there will as I think that is what you do when you come in to a new job.

"First and foremost, you see what you have got available. It is a clean slate for people when I walk in the door, they have a chance to impress and then we will see within the playing squad and the 11 we can strengthen and where we can add to it to make us more competitive.

"I think the important thing is we're a team here. There's no ego and it's not just about me.

"I'm a team player so myself, Mark and Andy will bang our heads together in the coming weeks and if we identify players with the right qualities and the right values who we believe can handle the pressure and responsibilty of being a Rangers player.

"Not players who just want to come and be a Rangers player, players who want to come, face the challenge and deliver under pressure.

"If we can identify players who fancy that, we'll get them in."
