Rangers news: Whelan verdict on Gerrard quitting for Aston Villa

Noel Whelan has tipped Steven Gerrard to snub an approach from big hitters Aston Villa to stay at Rangers for at least another year. 

The former Aberdeen striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, suggested the 40-year-old would not want to replace Dean Smith after seeing the Villa boss do “little wrong” at Villa Park.

He signed a new contract with the Gers, which is set to run until 2024, back in February.
