Aston Villa confirmed the appointment of Gerrard as their new manager earlier today on a three-and-a-half-year contract.


The former midfielder left Rangers after more than three years at the club, where he eventually stopped Celtic from winning ten-in-a-row when the Gers won the Scottish Premiership last season.



Sutton believes that Gerrard was a big draw in Scotland and helped the profile of Scottish football during his time as Rangers boss.


He conceded that stopping Celtic last season was massive for Rangers, but insisted that despite the league win, he did not do enough in terms of winning more trophies during his three-year stay at Ibrox.



Sutton took to Twitter and wrote: “Good luck to Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa.


“He was great for Scottish football and raised its profile. He will be a big loss to Rangers.



“Stopping Celtic winning 10 was a big deal but Callum Davidson did win more trophies than him over the time.


“Who will Rangers turn to??”


Rangers are now being left with the job of finding a new manager in the middle of the season.


They are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table and will be in Scottish League Cup semi-final action against Hibernian after the international break.
