Soccer star Steven Gerrard has said he is enjoying his "Z-list" celebrity status in the US after moving to LA Galaxy.

The former England and Liverpool captain said his new life in the US was "mind-blowing".

Gerrard (35) left Merseyside this summer after 17 years with the Reds.

He told Hello! magazine: "I couldn't be happier right now. I've gone from not being able to walk down a street without being stopped every five minutes to being a Z-lister out here and that's cool. I love it.

"We're very lucky, I know that. I grew up on a council estate and will always remain grounded and humble. But this is mind-blowing."

Gerrard, his wife Alex and their daughters, Lily-Ella, Lexie and Lourdes, are renting an $18m, six-bedroom mansion in Beverly Hills - once occupied by singer Mariah Carey - during his 18-month contract with LA Galaxy.
