STEVEN GERRARD will manage Scotland's Euro hopefuls Jon McLaughlin and Ryan Jack to ensure Rangers and the national side get the best out of them this term.

The duo have returned to Ibrox following a successful international break that saw Steve Clarke's side reach the European Championship finals with victory over Serbia.

McLaughlin didn't feature in any of the three matches as David Marshall and Craig Gordon played between the sticks but the 33-year-old has been a regular part of Clarke's squad in recent times.

The former Hearts and Sunderland keeper is battling with Allan McGregor for the Gers gloves and, when asked if he could assist Scotland by giving McLaughlin more game time, Gerrard laughed: “It's not my job to help Scotland.

“Look we rate Jon very highly. We've got two top class number one goalkeepers here. I'll make the best decisions for Rangers.

“What I will say is I'll remain in communication and dialogue with Steve Clarke.

“I think it's important that we manage Ryan Jack and Jon in the best possible way, so I will try to support the national team from that point of view.

“I want both players to go and represent Rangers and I want them to go in the best form and in the best place they can be.

“But that won't affect my decisions from a domestic point of view. I've got to get results for Rangers, I've got to manage Ryan Jack in the best possible way for him.

“Jon will get games of football here, for sure, with where Allan is at in his career. So Jon will play football from now until the summer.

"Will that be enough to please Steve Clarke, I don't know. That's obviously a question you'll have to ask Clarkey."
