Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa ‘on the verge of completion’ claims club legend as Ally McCoist makes final appeal – .


Confident Aston Villa legend Gabriel Agbonlahor is confident Steven Gerrard will be the club’s next boss imminently.
The 35-year-old says he heard positive news about the Rangers boss taking the reins at Villa Park after Dean Smith was sacked over the weekend.

Aston Villa are focused on Gerrard and are expected to make an official approach to Ibrox’s board on Wednesday, with a compensation amount of between £ 2-3million expected to be enough to secure their man.

And Agbonlahor is convinced that the Liverpool icon is the man who will change the fortunes of his former club after a poor start to the season in the English Premier League.

Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: “I hear that is about to be done as well.

“I think for Steven Gerrard it’s the perfect club, it takes them to the Premier League, managing in the Premier League.




“Aston Villa, the fifth richest owner in the English Premier League, they have money to spend, they will give him money to spend in January, if necessary.

“Look at the team of players, it’s a team of players who should be fighting to get into the top six, they have some really good players there.

“For me it would be a great job for Steven Gerrard, it would be a shame for the Rangers, he did a great job there, I’m sorry Ally!

“I think you’re gonna lose it buddy.”

Rangers legend Ally McCoist was bullish ahead of the segment as he roared “he’s not going” but conceded that Gerrard’s time at Ibrox could come to an abrupt end.

He added, “Look, you were doing fine until you laughed.

“The longer it goes, the more my worry grows, it’s the best league in the world and Villa is a top team, I really love Villa.

“I’m disgusted with Dean Smith, I think he should have had more time.

“As far as Steven goes, I still think it’s a gamble, really, but any job is a gamble. “
