The 36-year-old has held talks over a coaching role at his former club after retiring from playing, and teased a possible return during the draw

Steven Gerrard has joked that Liverpool will have to give him a coaching job after helping his former team with an easy draw in the FA Cup third round.

The 36-year-old announced his retirement from playing late in November and has been in discussions with a return to Anfield in a backroom role while opting against continuing talks with MK Dons over their then-vacant managerial position.

The former midfielder is understood to be in line for a role in Liverpool's academy under Alex Inglethorpe and the former captain teased a position while helping conduct the third round draw on Monday evening.

Gerrard pulled Liverpool's number out of the hat, quickling muttering "home draw" before Ian Wright blindly picked Newport County or Plymouth Argyle as their opponents.

"I've got him a job with Klopp now, he's happy now," Wright immediately remarked as Gerrard patted him on the back.

Gerrard replied: "Yep, should get a job for that."

Liverpool will play Newport or Plymouth over the weekend of January 6 to 9, 2017.
