believes that Liverpool are capable of beating Real Madrid in the Champions League final, saying that Salah’s current form will help the Reds.

Liverpool qualified for the Champions League final, where they will meet holders Real Madrid, with the Spanish side being considered as the favourites, having won the competition in three of the last four years.

However, Steven Gerrard, who was recently named as Rangers’ new head coach, is confident that his former side can clinch the Champions League title for the first time in over 10 years.

“I think we’ve got a really good chance, I wouldn’t say on current form we’re going into the game as underdogs,” Gerrard told Sport360.

“But, I suppose, Jurgen Klopp and the boys will want to go in as underdogs because it takes a little bit of pressure off.

“I think the form they’ve been in, how they’ve performed in the last two games against Roma, especially with Mo Salah (how he’s been playing), I think we go in with every confidence and belief that we can get the job done.”

And when speaking about Gerrard, Liverpool, and Champions League final, who can forget Liverpool’s historic come-back in 2005 in Istanbul.

The Reds, who were captained by Gerrard, found themselves 3-0 down at half-time, but goals from Gerrard, Smicer, and Alonso in just six minutes, took the game to extra time and penalties, which Liverpool managed to win.

Gerrard spoke about this unforgettable night, saying: “We were the underdogs and rightly so against a fantastic Milan side, we went in with confidence and belief and you never give up. I’ve experienced it, you can beat them.”
