The former Rangers manager was appointed at Villa today.

"Aston Villa are no stepping stone for anyone, they have won the European Cup, the biggest club in the Midlands and one of the biggest in the UK," Carragher said.

"Now I'm sure everyone is well aware that one day Stevie would like to manage Liverpool if everything works out, but he would only want to manage Liverpool if he merited it and the club and the supporters would also think that. Liverpool are not in a position where they can just give a job in the future to someone just because they had a great playing career.

"If Stevie does amazingly well at Villa and is qualifying for Europe and wins a Carabao Cup, maybe that will put him in the equation for Liverpool.

"But for Stevie, it is just focussing on Villa and do not worry about anything else."
