STEVEN GERRARD "dreams" of one day succeeding Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, according to his Rangers assistant manager Michael Beale.
Beale - a former youth coach at the Reds - has revealed the Kop icon is not getting ahead of himself for now.
Klopp recently claimed Gerrard would be his pick to replace him in the Anfield hotseat when he does leave the club.
Earlier this month, the German boss said: "If you ask who should follow me, I’d say Stevie."
But Stevie G is remaining grounded, firmly of the opinion Klopp is the man to bring the glory days back to Liverpool.
Beale told the Echo: "We have not spoken about it. It's a compliment of course, but at this moment in time, Liverpool have the best manager for them.
"As a supporter of the club, Steven being a passionate supporter, we don't just support the first team.
"We follow it through to the Under-23s and 18s and we have watched some games together. We know what is going on at all the youth teams.
"He is the biggest Liverpool fan and at this moment in time, if he had to choose a manager, it would be Jurgen Klopp.
"I don't think Steven is looking too far ahead, it is a big job and obviously that is the dream - or rather, the aim - for him long term to manage the club.
"But I think Steven would say himself, right now, the best manager for Liverpool Football Club is Jurgen Klopp. Long may that continue."
