Tue, 01 May 19:19:00 2012
Gerrard worked with Hodgson during the 64-year-old's ill-fated spell in charge of Liverpool and has been tipped as a possible future England captain.
Gerrard said in a statement released to Press Association Sport: "I've worked with Roy. He's a good man and a good manager. It's important he's given a chance and I'm looking forward to working with him again."
Terry faces a court case in July when he will answer the charges, which he denies.
Speaking at a Football Association press conference at Wembley to announce his appointment, the new England manager said: "Will Gerrard be England captain? That's another thing that will have to be carefully thought out.
"It's one of the things that will occupy my time in the days ahead."
Wilshere tweeted: "For England....good choice in my opinion! Good luck and I hope I can help him in some way in the future!"
