STEVEN GERRARD is now the favourite to become the next Liverpool manager after Jurgen Klopp according to Ladbrokes.
In response to the news that Gerrard will return to the club in a coaching capacity later this year the bookies have slashed the odds of him replacing Klopp as and when he leaves to 4/1, from 12/1, making him the favourite to succeed the German.
A return to the pitch for Liverpool in a competitive match isn't entirely ruled out either, with 5/2 offered he turns out for the side again at any point in his career.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "We're sure Liverpool fans will be pleased to see Gerrard become the favourite to be the next manager at Anfield. We don't completely dismiss the chances of a playing swansong either."
