Liverpool legend and key figure for the England international team over the last two decades, Steven Gerrard has officially announced his retirement from professional football.
After as single season in the MLS playing for LA Galaxy, there was rumor of Gerrard making a return to Liverpool. He may just find himself back at Anfield but it would be in a coaching or front office position. Gerrard made his Reds debut in 1998 and, while Liverpool failed to win a title during his career, he did help lead the club to three runner-up finishes in the Premier League, most recently in 2013/14, and led the led the club to eight major trophies. He earned 114 caps for the Three Lions, placing him fourth all-time on that list. He totaled 141 goals in 618 appearances combined for club and country. He brought a workman's like approach to the game, playing as a box-to-box midfielder capable of scoring and assisting while operating as the field general and ambassador for the sport. A management role is likely to come his way in the not-too-distant future and he was already linked with MK Dons for that very gig. Thu, Nov 24, 2016 06:53:00 AM

Liverpool have reached an agreement with Inter Milan on the signing of midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

Kovacic had a great season with Inter Milan and was a highly wanted target for a number of European Clubs. He plays both as a central midfielder and an attacking midfielder but can also feature on the left if needed. Kovacic is part of the solution for Liverpool losing Steven Gerrard and he will provide some much needed passing and creativity to the squad next season. At 1.2 shots per match, Kovacic is not a high volume shooter but he did register 5 goals and 3 assists in 35 Serie A matches last season. He comes at a price of £16 million, which is a great price for a 21-year-old up-and-coming player.

In an otherwise forgettable finish to the season, Steven Gerrard was able to add a final goal to his Liverpool career, but it was only a consolation as the Reds were walloped by Stoke City, 6-1.

Liverpool broke a record today that they will not be bragging about any time soon - for the first time in PL History, they conceded five goals in the opening half. With the result last week against Crystal Palace, the Reds finished the season by shipping nine goals in two. Still, the legend of this generation of Liverpool Football Club managed to score for his city one last time, scoring in the 70th minute. It was a down year for Liverpool, who made up for a lack of Luis Suarez with excellent defending during the bulk of the season, but fans will now be wondering what to expect heading into August after today's result.

Steven Gerrard did not have the storybook ending to his Anfield career as he had hoped as Crystal Palace would score three times and hand the Reds a 1-3 loss.

The occasion began well enough. Adam Lallana scored the opener by pouncing on a wayward Martin Kelly pass and knifing his way through the defense before finishing past Wayne Hennessey to give the Reds the initial advantage. Gerrard had little influence as the game wore on however, playing deep in midfield, and the Eagles would equalize just before halftime, take the lead on the hour mark, then put the game to bed in stoppage time. It was this time last year that Liverpool had come oh-so-close to bringing a league title home only for a Gerrard error to cost them dearly and the follow up campaign has been an overall disappointment, but a football fan cannot help feel sentimental for the 17 year career he gave to his hometown Reds. Anfield is still packed as his legacy is honored postgame.

Steven Gerrard scored an equalizer to earn Liverpool a point at Stamford Bridge.

The two captains each scored a goal in a match that ended 1-1. Chelsea's John Terry opened up the scoring early on and Chelsea controlled the match from then on, but a 44th minute free-kick gave Gerrard an opportunity and he headed in an equalizer. Chelsea started a number of youngsters and were obviously not too concerned with winning the match as they've already secured the title. Liverpool, on the other hand, really needed the three points to have a chance at a top four finish but those chances are dwindling with every dropped point.

Steven Gerrard missed a penalty but recovered to score a late winner as Liverpool overcame QPR at Anfield 2-1.

It was an up and down match for Gerrard but it ended in a storybook way for the Liverpool legend as he scored the Reds' winner at the Kop End. It didn't come on his last appearance at the hallowed ground but the winner may serve as a final special memory on the pitch as the captain once again led his club to victory when it looked like they might have to settle for a draw. Gerrard's score came in the 88th minute after Philippe Coutinho and Leroy Fer scored on either side of halftime. Nedum Onuoha was sent off after he collected his second yellow card.

Liverpool will have plenty of moments to point to in a 1-2 loss to Manchester United that was vital to their Champions League aspirations, but none will be more talked about than Steven Gerrard's red card.

The matchup promised to be one filled with drama and anyone watching got their fill. Manchester United grabbed the opening goal and led 0-1 at the break, but at that point, the match felt like it could have gone either way. Adam Lallana was substituted to begin the second by Gerrard after the former took the worse of a nasty collision with Phil Jones in the opening frame. Gerrard proceeded to spend roughly 30 seconds or so on the pitch before issuing a stamp on Ander Herrera. To make matters worse for Pool and their fans was another incident involving Jones, who delivered another harsh challenge but only saw yellow for it. United then took control by taking a two goal lead. A Daniel Sturridge strike helped the Reds get back in it, but the ten man side could not overcome. Gerrard stands to serve a three match ban, taking a massive bite out of his remaining time to play in a Reds shirt.

Steven Gerrard has been deemed fit for selection when Liverpool travel to Swansea City on Monday night.

A major boost for Liverpool as their captain returns for the final stretch of matches as a member of the Reds. The club already seems ready for life without him next season, as Jordan Henderson has really developed into an effective similar role. With Gerrard returning, it takes a hit to Henderson's value. Gerrard is only 11m and change in the Yahoo game at the moment. While a risk to think about him this week, you may want to consider bringing him early after the deadline if you want him on the cheap.

Steven Gerrard will remain sidelined through the weekend and will not be available for Liverpool as they travel to St. Mary's on Sunday to play Southampton.

After missing out entirely on last night's Europa contest against Besiktas, this news comes as little surprise. With Lucas still on the shelf as well, expect Joe Allen to fill again alongside Jordan Henderson for that central defensive midfield partnership against the Saints. With Raheem Sterling looking set to return and Daniel Sturridge back completely, the Reds should still plenty of ways to score, but the captain's leadership will certainly be missed in a big match.

Steven Gerrard is still not ready to return from a hamstring injury he picked up on the 10th of this month as Brendan Rodgers has already ruled him out of contention for tomorrow night's Europa match against Besiktas.

With Gerrard already counted out for Thursday and Liverpool having their next league match Sunday, it is not looking good already for his availability. Had he at least made the bench for tomorrow, it would put him on track for a possible return Sunday, but now he looks a serious doubt. Rodgers will likely shed light on Gerrard's status on Friday.

Steven Gerrard will have a scan on Thursday after aggravating a hamstring problem during the Tuesdays nights’ win over Tottenham at Anfield.

The talismanic midfielder has been struggling recently with hamstring tightness which has been managed carefully by the club; however the Spurs match came just three days after a bruising Merseyside derby and the concern now is that Gerrard has damaged muscle tissue. If confirmed a grade one tear would mean up to three weeks on the sidelines and with Lucas Leiva [groin] expected to miss at least a month plus Raheem Sterling currently receiving treatment for a foot problem Liverpool are a little stretched. Although Rodgers still has options with Joe Allen available and Kolo Toure joining the group again on Monday, but any further injuries and the situation will be a worry given their impending Europa League campaign. Mario Balotelli is hoping his midweek goal will be enough to kick-start his Liverpool career.

Stevem Gerrard played in his thirty-third and possibly his final Merseyside derby today as Liverpool would grab a point at Goodison Park in a 0-0 stalemate.

One would think that it what everyone involved had to be consider this Gerrard's final appearance in this historic matchup, but the game lacked its usual passion and drama. Jordan Ibe came close to scoring one of the finer goals of the season in the first half as he sent a pretty shot that clanked off the corner of the far post. Making just his second start for the senior team, he showed some a bit of flair. The worst news for Pool is that both Lucas and Phillipe Coutinho were forced off early due to knocks and their status becomes instantly in question seeing as their next match is coming Tuesday.

Steven Gerrard was removed from Liverpool's win over Sunderland at halftime due to tightness in the leg.

The extent of the injury is yet unknown but Brendan Rodgers indicated that the decision was a precautionary one, suggesting the Anfield legend will not stay sidelined long, if at all. He assisted the lone goal of the day and the Reds cannot afford to lose him long as their attack looked considerably weaker without him and that was with a man advantage for the most part.

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has confirmed he will join MLS side Los Angeles Galaxy this summer.

As we all know, Steven Gerrard announced last week that he would be moving to America when his existing contract with his boyhood club expires at the end of the current season, and it has now been confirmed that the 34-year-old midfielder will join the LA Galaxy on an 18-month contract in July. Galaxy coach Bruce Arena confirmed the deal, telling the LA Times: "Steven Gerrard arrives in July. He's a player of quality." Galaxy club president Chris Klein added "Steven Gerrard is the perfect fit with what he brings to us on the field and the character that he has off it." Gerrard himself added: "One of the reasons I chose LA Galaxy was because of the success they've had recently. I want to finish my career very strong. I want to add some medals and trophies to my collection."

Steven Gerrard will leave Liverpool at the end of the season and join another club to be named within the next 24 hours.

Gerrard, who scored two penalties in today’s 2-2 draw with Leicester City, has not decided which club he'll continue with just yet, but a move to Major League Soccer is all the buzz right now and several clubs are interested, including LA Galaxy. Liverpool offered Gerrard a new deal in November, but the former England captain has decided the time is right to move on and experience something different.
