Steven Gerrard brilliantly shut down a question about Liverpool during his first press conference as Aston Villa boss.

Gerrard left Rangers last week and was appointed as Villa boss following Dean Smith's sacking. The former Red will take charge of his first game this weekend, with his new side facing Brighton.

The Liverpool legend was asked about his impending trip to Merseyside in his presser on Thursday, and brushed away the question, saying the press conference should be about Villa.

"I don't think this press conference should be about any other club but Aston Villa," he said. "I'm all in and I can promise our supporters that's the case."

The 41-year-old added: "I think everyone around the world knows what Liverpool means to me, but the focus and my commitment is very much at Aston Villa."

And fans on social media were extremely impressed with Gerrard's response.
