Midfielder Maxi Rodriguez has left Liverpool to rejoin former club Newell's Old Boys in Argentina.
The 31-year-old never established himself as a regular first-team starter after joining from Atletico Madrid in January 2010 but he still managed some stand-out performances. The Argentinian, a fans' favourite if not one with the three different managers he had at Anfield, wrote an open letter to supporters.
"Dear Reds, I am leaving Liverpool FC today," it said."Before signing for LFC, I just saw the club as one of the greatest institutions in football. After my time here I can confirm that this is not just a great club but also a great family."
