The club’s fans called for him to be fired after a humiliating 3 – 0 loss to Fulham on Thursday.
The former England midfielder played 17 seasons for Liverpool and retired in 2016 as a player, after a season with LA Galaxy of Major League Soccer.
Steven Gerrard was appointed head coach of Aston Villa On 11th November, 2021 after replacing Dean Smith.
The 42-year-old Gerrard joined Villa from Rangers after spending three years with the Scottish club in his first managerial post.

Aston Villa added in a concise statement: “we would like to thank Steven for his hard work and commitment and wish him well for the future.”
Gerrard’s manager at Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers stated: “I’m bitterly disappointed for Steven, he did a fantastic job at Rangers and the ambitions at Villa, I assumed are to be challenging for Europe.”
He added: “I believe with time and patience he could have got to where that football club wants to go”. Steven Gerrard has left the club with immediate effect.
