Steven Gerrard has been appointed as manager of Aston Villa on a three-and-a-half-year deal. The Liverpool legend, 41, leaves Rangers after three years, having guided the club to a first league title in 10 years last season. Gerrard replaces Dean Smith, who was sacked by Villa last weekend after five successive defeats."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," Gerrard said after the news was confirmed.
