Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has been linked with a move to Aston Villa and, as to be expected, it has caused quite the stir on social media.
According to an exclusive report from Football Insider, Villa chief executive Christian Purslow holds a “strong interest” in hiring Gerrard ahead of the summer.
The pair know each other well from their time at Liverpool, with the report claiming that Dean Smith’s position as Villa manager is uncertain in the long-term despite a solid season.
Be honest, should Dean Smith be doing better with Aston Villa's squad?
No, he's about par
Gerrard is under contract at Ibrox until 2024 and it remains to be seen what his views are on a possible move to Villa Park.
Villa fans react
Football Insider shared the story on their Twitter page on Thursday morning. It didn’t take long for numerous Villa fans to have their say on the story, with one describing it as ‘stupid’.
“That’s enough Twitter in the day for me”
“More stupid click bait!”
“This has come out of nowhere!”
“Utter dross Gerrard is Liverpool bound soon enough. Smith is doing a great job, summer & next season will tell if Smith can take us to the next step, if not then owners may want to change tact, and go for a top pedigree manager to take us there”
“Surely no Villa fan wants this?”
“Another one to the block list. Silly season already”
