Villa are currently number 16 in the Premier League, two points above the relegation zone.

Gerrard 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 [Sawiris], Wes [Edens] 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.”


Gerrard took his first steps into senior management in 2018 with Rangers and will be leaving them at the top of the table, four points above rivals Celtic.

He played for Liverpool FC 710 times and saw them win nine trophies before spending a season at LA Galaxy in 2015. He retired as a player in 2016.

Gerrard went on to coach the Liverpool youth academy before managing the under 18s team from 2017-2018.


He is England’s fourth-most capped player and made 114 international appearances scoring 21 goals.
