Rangers boss Steven Gerrard responds to Newcastle job speculation

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has claimed he is fully focused on his team amid speculation linking him with the Newcastle job. The Magpies have new owners after Saudi-led takeover and there are rumours that head coach Steve Bruce might step down from his job. Former Liverpool star Gerrard is one of the names in the speculation to take the Newcastle job. However, Rangers boss wouldn't let any talk surrounding his future take away top of the table clash with Hearts tomorrow. Reacting to the reports, he said:
"I don't really react, or get involved in any kind of speculation, especially when there is someone who I have the utmost respect for sitting in that job, that the speculation is about.   "For me, I am in a very big job and a very big role here that I am very much fully focused on.   "We have got a top of the table clash at the weekend and it's a game I'm very much looking forward to.   "I've certainly got one eye on Newcastle, in terms of watching Brucey get his 1000th game. He's a great character of the game, someone who I've got a personal relationship with, and have the utmost respect for.   "I've really looking forward to seeing him get his 1000th game. I think it's a mammoth achievement.   "Sitting in this position, I certainly wouldn't like anybody to be speculating about my job, so I certainly won't be getting involved in any of the speculation towards his.   "I think it's interesting what is happening at Newcastle, I think if anyone deserves a break it's the Geordie fans, so I'm sure excitement levels are very high on the Toon.   "I'm sure everyone involved with the game is looking on with interest to see how it develops, but from a personal point of view I don't really get involved in speculation and I wish Steve all the best."
