Before his return to the premier league, Gerrad gave the Ranger club the Scottish Premiership title in 10 years, last season, finishing the campaign undefeated in the league.
Gerrard resumed as the manager of Glasgow Rangers since June 2018 and he has won the Scottish Premiership last season.
While accepting the role of the manager, Gerrard expressed joy as he said he is immensely proud to become the new head coach of Aston Villa.
Gerrard said: “Aston Villa is a club with a rich history and tradition in English football and I am immensely proud to become its new head coach.
“In my conversations with [the owners] Nassef [Sawiris], Wes [Edens] and the rest of the board, it was apparent how ambitious their plans are for the club and I am looking forward to helping them achieve their aims.
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everybody associated with Glasgow Rangers for giving me the opportunity to manage such an iconic football club.
“Helping them secure a record-breaking 55th league title will always hold a special place in my heart. I would like to wish the players, staff and supporters the very best for the future.”
