Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has dismissed speculation linking him with Newcastle as "fake news".

The Magpies are on the lookout for a new manager following Rafael Benitez's exit last month.

Gerrard is thought to be one of the names on a shortlist which reportedly also features Mikel Arteta, Quique Sanchez Flores and Garry Monk.

However, the Liverpool legend appeared to rule out a move when he was asked to address the rumours.

"Fake news," he said. "Not that I'm aware of."

Rangers finished second in the Scottish Premiership in 2018/19, which was Gerrard's first season in management.
