However, the former England international doesn’t seem to have forgotten his old club, even sporting some Liverpool branded shin pads while on the pitch. The Anfield hero revealed them when he was subbed off in the 87th minute of the encounter, having already done enough to guarantee the win.

This is sure to be heartbreaking for Liverpool fans, who will be wondering how their team will cope without their skipper. Manager Brendan Rodgers has brought in James Milner to play in the midfielder’s position, but it is likely that the whole team will have to pick up their performances to make up for Gerrard’s absence.
