Published Add your comment

Steven Gerrard admitted it was a humbling experience to be honoured by the Football Writers' Association at a gala tribute dinner in London.

The Liverpool and England captain was guest of honour at The Savoy Hotel, where he was presented with the prestigious accolade from FWA chairman Andy Dunn of the Sunday Mirror.

Gerrard, 32, was voted FWA Footballer of the Year in 2009 and was touched to have been recognised for his achievements once again. Speaking to the FWA before Sunday evening's dinner, Gerrard said: "Tonight's award means a lot because these guys have followed me throughout my career, written about me whenever I have played."
