Premier League club Aston Villa have confirmed the appointment of former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard as their new manager after securing his release from Scottish club Rangers.

Gerrard will take over the club with a bid to stabilise the situation of the club after former manager Dean Smith led them to five consecutive losses before he was sacked. Gerrard led Rangers to a Scottish Premier League title last season, breaking the 10 years monopoly of Celtic and finished the season unbeaten.

The 41 year old spent 17 years in the Premier League playing for Liverpool and scored 102 Premier League goals of which 12 came against Aston Villa, more than he scored against any other Premier League club. The goals include Gerrard's first two Premier League hat-tricks.

Aston Villa beat Liverpool 7-2 last season at Villa Park. Gerrard's first return to Liverpool at Anfield as a manager will be on December 11 and it'll be an audition for him against Jürgen Klopp, a manager he's expected to replace at Liverpool.
