Derby County owner Mel Morris has denied any managerial interest in former Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard this summer.

Steven Gerrard is the manager of Scottish Premiership giants Rangers at the moment having been appointed to the job last summer.

Mel Morris rubbished recent reports that Derby County contacted Rangers for Steven Gerrard.

The Derby County owner was asked about Steven Gerrard while he was on TalkSport earlier today and his answer was emphatic.

He described those transfer rumours linking Derby County with a move for Steven Gerrard as absolute rubbish.

Steven Gerrard had earlier distanced himself from the Derby County job saying that he’s happy with his current role as the Rangers manager.

Derby County have already given Chelsea permission to speak with their manager Frank Lampard who’s expected to be named the Blues boss in the coming days, meaning that the Rams will need a new manager.

Frank Lampard is expected to leave the club after just one season as the Derby County manager.

The English Championship club will receive £4m in compensation for Frank Lampard who has already agreed to join Chelsea as their new manager.

Chelsea have offered him £5.5m on a yearly basis and he’s expected to sign a three-year contract.
