Just In! Steven Gerrard Reacts To Appointment As Aston Villa New Coach

Aston Villa on Thursday announced Steven Gerrard as new head coach.

The former Liverpool captain joins Villa from Glasgow Rangers which he guided to the Scottish Premiership title last season.

His signing is a two and a half year deal which will see him replace Dean Smith who parted ways with the club on Sunday after a run of five successive league defeats, with Villa 16th in the table.

Gerrard speaking on his appointment 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 Nassef, Wes and the rest of the Board, 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.”
