Steven Gerrard is the new manager of Aston Villa.

He replaces Dean Smith who was sacked days ago after his Premier League side lost five games on the trot – leaving Villa just above the relegation zone.


Gerrard, 41, said:

“Aston Villa is a club with a rich history and tradition in English football and I am immensely proud to become its new Head Coach.

“In my conversations with Villa it was apparent how ambitious their plans are for the club, and I am looking forward to helping them achieve their aims.

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everybody associated with Glasgow Rangers for giving me the opportunity to manage such an iconic football club.

“Helping them secure a record-breaking 55th league title will always hold a special place in my heart.

“I would like to wish the players, staff and supporters the very best for the future.”

Gerrard headed Villa’s list of managers to replace Smith.

It will be the former Liverpool and England player’s first foray in the Premier League as a manager.

Gerrard – who has “saintly” status at Liverpool – will play his former club on December 11th.

His first game in charge will be against Brighton on November 20th.
