Liverpool bids farewell to Gerrard, a humble hometown icon

14 May 2015, 16:36

Liverpool - Ask Liverpool fans what they'll miss most about Steven Gerrard when he leaves for the United States and they'll reel off a list of qualities that made their long-time captain one of the most revered players in English football.

The spectacular goals. Those surging runs into the box. His indomitable spirit. His devotion to the club.

Gerrard is regarded as a humble hometown icon in these parts and that will ensure there'll be an outpouring of emotion Saturday when he plays at Anfield for the final time in a Liverpool shirt.

Gerrard said Thursday "I've been dreading this moment. I'm going to miss it so much."

Gerrard has played 708 games in 17 years with Liverpool, scoring 185 goals. He will move to the Los Angeles Galaxy at the end of the English season.
