Gerrard officially started in his role on 1 June but has spent that time studying towards his pro licence and attending matches at the Toulon Tournament in France. 

His first competitive test will come in the Europa League first qualifying round first leg on 12 July.

Rangers will discover their opponents for that tie and potential second round foes at the draw ceremony in Nyon on 20 June.
