Steven Gerrard, the former Liverpool and England captain, is to receive the freedom of his home city.

Gerrard has been nominated for the civic award by Liverpool’s mayor, Joe Anderson, a recognition of the 36-year-old’s contribution to national and international football as well his charity work on Merseyside.

The mayor’s nomination is expected to be formally agreed on Wednesday, January 18 at a city council meeting, with the freedom ceremony taking place later in the year.
