STEVEN GERRARD has landed a new job five months after being sacked by Aston Villa.
And the step is celebrated as a “big coup”.
Gerrard stayed at Villa Park for less than a year after joining them from Rangers in November 2021.
The Liverpool legend won just 13 of his 40 games before getting the boot in October.
And after seeing Unai Emery replace him in the Midlands, Gerrard has yet to land a new role.
However, the former England captain has finally managed to make a grand entrance this week.
This is after he was snapped up by Channel 4 for the Three Lions’ upcoming Euro qualifiers.
The broadcaster believes they pulled off a “huge coup” to sign Gerrard for England’s games against Italy and Ukraine.
And the Mail adds he’s likely to be joined in the studio by Joe Cole and Jill Scott.
Meanwhile, Gerrard continues to be linked with a return to the beautiful game.

It is claimed he was shortlisted by Leeds to replace Jesse Marsch before they settled on Javi Gracia.
And Gerrard is also said to have held talks with Turkish side Trabzonspor after flying to Istanbul this month.
But incredibly, Paris Saint-Germain are expected to take a nosedive as the pressure mounts on Christophe Galtier.
The French were beaten 2-0 at home by Rennes last night.
And they were eliminated from the Champions League after losing to Bayern Munich.
