The Kop legend planted a header from a Philippe Coutinho past his former England team-mate Robert Green with three minutes left at Anfield to secure a 2-1 victory for the Reds and keep their faint hopes of a top-four finish alive.
The goal made up for his missed penalty a few moments before when he fluffed his lines from 12 yards with the scoreline locked at 1-1 as Green produced a good stop to keep his side in the game at that point.
But the 34-year-old, who departs the Premier League at the end of the season, had the last laugh on his penultimate game at Anfield by scoring the winner and later admitted he was pleased to make up for the disappointment of the spot-kick by leading the side to victory:
“I am very disappointed with the penalty, but delighted with the header and everyone goes home happy because we’ve got three nice points.” he told the club’s official website.
