Former Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has boosted the value of his personal company to more than £9million.

The Liverpool legend set up Steven Gerrard Promotions during his playing career to channel his off-field income from the likes of sponsorship deals. And figures show he is continuing to rake in the cash more than seven years after he hung up his boots.

Accounts filed at Companies House for the 43-year-old’s firm show it has reserves of £9,039,518. That includes an investment portfolio worth more than £6.3million, cash in a bank account and money owed to it by debtors. The company made a profit of more than £1.5million for the year up to March 31, 2023, and its value increased by more than £900,000 on the previous year’s figure.

Gerrard, who left Rangers to become Aston Villa manager in November 2021, is secretary and co-director of the company along with his brother Paul. The ex-Ibrox boss, now in charge of Saudi Pro League club Al-Ettifaq, has his own clothing brand called SSG Apparel and has used his social media accounts to endorse a number of ­products including scented candles.

Accounts have also shown Gerrard has given away more than £40,000 to good causes over the last two years through his charitable foundation. The Steven Gerrard Foundation was set up in 2011 to provide funding for a range of children’s ­charitable organisations and projects.

The former midfielder was appointed Rangers manager in June 2018 and guided the club to their first Scottish Premiership title in 10 years in 2021. He was sacked by Aston Villa in October after just 11 months in charge.
