Steven Gerrard has criticized claims that he will use Aston Villa's job as a stepping stone to eventually take over his former club Liverpool. Rangers - The Premier League bout Villa welcomes Brighton to Gerrard's Saturday opener and his emotional reunion with Liverpool arrives at Anfield on December 11th. Gerrard insists, however, that his move to Villa Park after three and a half years in Glasgow wasn't motivated by another step towards his Liverpool dream.

The 41-year-old has replaced Dean Smith at Villa Park after five straight defeats triggered his predecessor's sacking. The city is just two points above the relegation zone and Gerrard knows he needs to see an immediate rebound in results.
