Rangers FC manager Steven Gerrard is one of the frontrunners at becoming the next Aston Villa manager but according to Barry Ferguson, the 41-year-old will reject the offer.

Ferguson believes Gerrard will think logically when trying to analyze the Aston Villa approach and one thing he needs more is to win more trophies in Scotland.

The Rangers legend said, as quoted: “I’m not surprised with the job he’s done, certainly over the last 16-months or so.

“I know Villa pretty well having played in the city with Birmingham. They’ve got a fantastic stadium and training ground – they are a big club.

“But I think Steven Gerrard has got unfinished business. I believe that even if Aston Villa do come calling, I think he will remain at Rangers this season.

“Money is no object for Aston Villa. The Premier League alone is a big pull. I think, in Steven Gerrard’s eyes, he has still got to win more trophies to then make that step down to England.

“This season is so important for him to retain the league title, but also add some of the domestic cups.

“I firmly believe he will remain at Rangers to try and get another couple of trophies under his belt, then his stock is even higher. He may look in the following season to make the next step if another job becomes available.”

Steven Gerrard to reject Aston Villa’s offer?

Gerrard has won one SPFL title during his tenure at Rangers but if Aston Villa are serious about bringing him on board, the 41-year-old will not be able to resist the temptation.

Unlike Newcastle United, Villa are not languishing at the bottom of the table and the kind of squad that Villa have amassed this season only a few good games will push them up the table.

Several rumours have claimed that Gerrard is now the favourite to take charge at Villa Park meaning the management is going to make contact with him in the coming days.

At Villa, Steven Gerrard will finally be able to showcase his talent at the top level and associate it with the prospect of making big-money signings and the Rangers boss will just not be able to look the other way when the Midlands side comes calling.
