Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has left his post at Rangers to become Aston Villa’s new permanent manager.

Villa have moved quickly to secure their next head coach after deciding to sack Dean Smith following the team’s 1-0 loss to Southampton last week.

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez had also been linked with the role, but Gerrard has now stepped into the dugout at Villa Park, committing to an initial two-and-a-half-year contract.

What has been said?

Gerrard told his new club’s website:  “Aston Villa has a rich history and tradition in English football and I am immensely proud to become its new head coach.

“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.”

Villa CEO Christian Purslow said: “It has been very clear in our discussions with him that Steven’s coaching ambitions, philosophy and values entirely match those of Aston Villa.

“We are excited he has agreed to lead us in the next phase of our ambitious plans as we look to build on the progress made since Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens took over the club in 2018.”

In a statement announcing Gerrard’s departure, Rangers said: “Gerrard moves to the Midlands having played a key role in the significant growth of the Light Blues in numerous areas during his three-and-a-half years at Ibrox.

“Rangers now has an outstanding, highly competitive playing squad which is capable of both winning and entertaining on all fronts, with the highest of standards now also prevalent throughout the football department.

“Rangers Football Club would like to put on record their thanks to Steven and his staff and wish them every success in the future. They will always be welcome at Ibrox.”
