Rangers break silence on Steven Gerrard's appointment as Aston Villa manager

Rangers have broken their silence on outgoing boss Steven Gerrard, who was officially announced as the new head coach of Aston Villa. The 41-year-old led the 'Gers to the Scottish Premiership title last term - ending Celtic's nine-year stranglehold. However, on Thursday it was announced that he moves to Villa Park to replace Dean Smith, following his sacking last weekend. Rangers released a statement on Gerrard departure and praised him for what he did at the club:
"Rangers can today announce the departure of manager Steven Gerrard to Aston Villa.   "Gerrard moves to the Midlands club having played a key role in the significant growth of the Light Blues in numerous areas during his three-and-a-half years at Ibrox.   "Rangers now has an outstanding, highly competitive playing squad which is capable of both winning and entertaining on all fronts, with the highest of standards now also prevalent throughout the football department.   "In European competition, Rangers have qualified for group stage football for four successive seasons, and knockout-stage football in the last two, improving not only the club’s standing on the continent, but also that of Scottish Football.   "Domestically, Rangers have flourished under Gerrard, with that work culminating in the club claiming their 55th title last season on the back of an unbeaten league campaign.   "He now leaves Rangers with the club top of the Scottish Premiership with a Premier Sports Cup semi-final to look forward to and the opportunity to qualify yet again for the knockout stages of the Europa League still in the team’s own hands."
