Gerrard leaves Rangers for Villa

Update: 2021-11-113


Connie McLaughlin is joined by former West Ham and England defender Matthew Upson, ex-Aston Villa and Wales defender James Collins and our senior football reporter Ian Dennis to react to the news that Steven Gerrard has been appointed as the new Aston Villa manager.

The guys explain why they think it’s a great move for both parties and what style of play they expect Gerrard to implement at Villa.

Our Scottish football reporter Roddy Forsyth and ex-Scotland forward James McFadden tell us what this means for Rangers going forward and for Scottish football in general. Plus, Rangers fan Courtney tells us why many supports are feeling betrayed by Gerrard for leaving the club during the season.

We discuss Scotland’s World Cup qualifier against Moldova and the injury problems they’re facing. And a year on from their infamous win over Serbia to qualify for Euro 2020, we hear from their manager Steve Clarke on what he thinks they’ve improved on over the last 12 months.

Football correspondent John Murray drops by to give us the latest from the England camp ahead of their matches against Albania and San Marino, from which they need four points to qualify for Qatar. Gareth Southgate shares his thoughts on Harry Kane’s form and Upson tells us why he thinks some players have struggled for form after the Euros.

And ahead of Wales’ crucial games against Belarus and Belgium, Collins tells us what it would mean for Gareth Bale to win his 100th cap and why he thinks Aaron Ramsey needs to leave Juventus for the benefit of his international career.
