The Rangers boss has enjoyed a successful stint in charge of the Scottish Premiership outfit, with the club currently sitting at the top of the league and standing a good chance of retaining the title.
Whilst it’ll be something of a shame for the manager to miss out on the opportunity of another league title under his belt, the opportunity with Aston Villa in the Premier League is a difficult one to turn down.
The former Liverpool skipper is quite unlikely to get a better club, if any in the English top-flight, by the end of the season, so we at the EOTK can certainly understand his reasoning behind the potential move.
Given his obvious connections to Merseyside, of course, it’s a managerial switch that will be closely followed, particularly with Jurgen Klopp’s contract set to expire in 2024.
