Liverpool legend Gerrard was greeted with boos and jeers as he walked out to his technical area for his side's FA Cup clash on Monday.
Though he was unfazed by the fan reaction, even turning around to deliberately face the Stretford End in a moment that fans loved online.
And the Villa boss continued to goad the Man United fans by taunting the noise they created for the third round meeting.
Steven Gerrard on the Old Trafford reception: "Relatively quiet. I have been to noisier stadiums than this. It was a good cup tie, a good atmosphere but in terms of what I got, water off a duck's back." #mulive [bbc]— utdreport (@utdreport) January 10, 2022
"Relatively quiet! I have been to noisier stadiums than this," he said on the atmosphere following his team's 1-0 defeat.
"It was a good cup tie, a good atmosphere but in terms of what I got, water off a duck’s back."
Villa enjoyed large spells of possession, but failed to score a legitimate goal having had two goals scratched off - including a controversial VAR moment.
Danny Ings bundled the ball home from a set-piece, though the goal was disallowed through VAR.
The decision to overrule the goal took over three minutes as match referee Michael Oliver reviewed the goal on the touchline monitor.
Asked for his thoughts on the contentious incident, Gerrard replied: "How long have you got?
"The officials took three and a half minutes to settle that one. They have looked at two or three things in it.
"When VAR is there and they make a decision, you have to accept it.
"There is nothing you can do to change it. The easy way out is to blame luck and the officials, we won’t do that."
Villa resume their Premier League campaign on Saturday when they yet again play Man United.
On facing The Red Devils twice in a week, Gerrard added: "It is quite unique to play a team in the space of five or six days. The players have an opportunity to flip the mood, flip the feeling.
"I am sure they are frustrated. They played quite well and dominated large arts but with no rewards for the performance so they have an opportunity at Villa Park to straighten that out.
"I am not disappointed in the performance tonight just disappointed we didn’t take our chances and conceded a sloppy goal."
