Former Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has become the seventh former player to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame. The 40-year-old who is the present manager of Scotland side Rangers made 710 appearances for Liverpool in his 17-years at Anfield.
Steven Gerald won nine major trophies, including the Champions League Liverpool, before retiring from professional football. Gerrard is the first inductee not to have won a Premier League title. He joins Roy Keane, Eric Cantona, Frank Lampard, Dennis Bergkamp, Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry.
Steven Gerrard Achievements as a Liverpool Player
Steven Gerrard was made Liverpool captain in 2003. He led the side to Champions League success in 2005, scoring the Reds’ first goal as they recovered from 3-0 down to beat Italian side AC Milan on penalties after playing 3-3 in full-time.
European club football’s biggest prize was the highlight of a career in which he collected two FA Cups, three League Cups, a Community Shield, a Uefa Cup and a Uefa Super Cup with his boyhood club. He left Liverpool and had a short spell in the United States with LA Galaxy before becoming a manager.
Gerrard’s inclusion in the Hall of Fame follows his former Chelsea manager and player Frank Lampard to the honour roll on Wednesday. So far, they have selected from a 23-man shortlist based on the most combined votes from the public and a Premier League panel.
