With his 100th goal yesterday against PSV in the group stage of the Champions League, Steven Gerrard added another historical statistic to his already-storied career at Liverpool. There’s something about playing PSV that brings the best out of Gerrard. He also set the record at the Liverpool for most European goals when he scored against the Dutch club during the 2007 Champions League campaign. With another record to his name, it surely now begs the question: Where does Gerrard rank in the history of all-time Liverpool greats?
The 100 goals puts him in rarefied company with the likes of Ian Rush, Kenny Dalglish, Robbie Fowler and Kevin Keegan – a group that surely makes up some of the club’s greatest legends. With a Champions League title, an FA Cup and other pieces of silverware to his name, one has to wonder if Gerrard is worth a mention in the top three.
Where do you think he stands in the list? Is Gerrard the greatest of them all; or do you think he needs a Premier League title to validate his greatness?
