But former Rangers manager and current Scotland coach Alex McLeish said Gerrard would have to learn on the job if he made the move to Ibrox.
And speaking at his news conference ahead of Liverpool's home game against Stoke on Saturday, Klopp said: "I'm not anxious".
While it would be a risk for the Gers to appoint a 37-year-old with no prior experience of first-team football management, it could pay off big time with the right investment in the summer transfer window.
The fact that Gerrard has chosen to develop his coaching skills away from the glare of first-team football could also work in his favour, although Benitez admits the step up may come as a shock. And if the speculation is right and Stevie has spoken to them then maybe there is something in that, that he feels that it is the right club.
"Knowing Steve as I do, he's a brilliant guy", the Hibs head coach said. They are desperate to put things right.
Gerrard must now decide if he is ready to leave his Anfield coaching apprenticeship after just 18 months within Jurgen Klopp's set up.Читайте также: Facebook promises political ad clean-up before United Kingdom local elections in 2019
Asked about Gerrard's managerial credentials, Benitez replied: "If you're asking me if he's a player or in this case a manager who knows the game, then the answer is yes".
"I wish I was 24, I wish I'd met Brendan when I was 24 because I think I'd be sitting here talking about a lot of titles that we'd won together". "I know the further I go there is more scrutiny, more attention, more opinions, more criticism, more praise".
"I think it would be a good appointment", the Stoke City midfielder wrote on Twitter.
"I'm sure he will do a bit of due diligence on it and he has plenty of people he can turn to for advice".
"It can be a harsh environment".
"We have seen a lot of good players and managers come and go very quickly because they have found it very hard to adapt to the pressures and expectations of what Glasgow can bring".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
