Steven Gerrard says he’s not ready for managerial role – will he re-join Liverpool?

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has admitted he held talks with League One MK Dons about their vacant managerial role.

Gerrard left LA Galaxy of the MLS earlier this month, 18 months after leaving Liverpool at the end of the 2014-15 season.

Steven Gerrard rules out MK Dons move

Steven Gerrard made 710 appearances in 17 seasons at LFC

Stevie has been working towards gaining his coaching qualifications and spoke to BT Sport to confirm he had held discussions with the club.

"I spoke to them [MK Dons]. I had a chat with the chairman, I think it's a very exciting job for someone else.

"But it's a bit soon for me, but it is true I did speak to them yes."

MK Dons are currently in the relegation zone and sacked Karl Robinson exactly one month ago today.  Karl Robinson is not only a fellow scouser but is also the same age as Steven Gerrard.

Where will he go?

Gerrard has been linked with both Newcastle United and Celtic, managed by two previous LFC managers in Brendan Rodgers and Rafa Benitez respectively.

He seems that he wants to extend his playing career by at least another season - a potential barrier to a return to Liverpool FC.

Indicating that he is not yet ready for a managerial position could add to rumours that he may return to Anfield in some form of coaching role or even complete his coaching qualifications at the Academy under the close eye of Jurgen Klopp.

Where will Gerrard end up next?
