Although Rovers are yet to officially confirm the move, Gerrard's prospective switch to the Keepmoat Stadium has been widely reported since Dickov was handed the reins with the Championship newboys last month.

Gerrard played for Latics between 1991 and 1996 and joined their staff three years ago, serving as joint-caretaker manager alongside Tony Philliskirk in the wake of Dickov's January departure.

Oldham manager Lee Johnson told his club's official website: "It is the first disappointment since I have been here.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
