Anfield rises to applaud departing Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard
Players and fans alike rose to salute Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard on his final playing appearance at Anfield in the famous red jersey.
The legendary club captain will depart for the Los Angeles Galaxy in the summer, and both sides lined up to welcome the former England international onto the pitch.
Gerrard was accompanied by his three daughters Lilly-Ella, Lexie and Lourdes as Anfield broke into rapturous applause and chanting for the long-serving midfielder.
It is rumoured that a playing return is not beyond the realms of possibility, while a coaching role down the line with Liverpool appears to be very much on the cards.
The Liverpool captain has held talks with club chairman Tom Werner and manager Rodgers on how he can be integrated into the backroom team once his playing career is over.
