The 34-year-old is tipped to make the switch to the MLS once the season finishes, although a host of teams will no doubt be vying for his signature.
Gerrard is currently one of very few top players who have spent their entire careers at one club, and he clearly has huge love for the Merseyside giants.
He has therefore announced, that despite not knowing where he will end up, he will not be signing for any team that would be in direct competition with Liverpool.
“I’m going to carry on playing and although I can’t confirm at this stage where that will be, I can say it will be somewhere that means I won’t be playing for a competing club and will not therefore be lining up against Liverpool – that is something I could never contemplate,” he said.
Gerrard has never won a Premier League title with the club, and saw his side come agonisingly close last season. And with Liverpool struggling somewhat in the new campaign, he is unlikely to change that before leaving next summer.
