MLS commissioner Don Garber might well have shattered the hopes of many Liverpool fans by confirming that Steven Gerrard is unlikely to make a loan return to Anfield this January. It’s been rumoured that the Merseyside legend could follow in the footsteps of the likes of David Beckham and Thierry Henry in returning to Europe for a short spell during the MLS off-season, but Garber said he hadn’t heard that is was being contemplated. It’s safe to assume Liverpool fans would be split on the prospect anyway. Sometimes it’s better to just move on and let it go. In other news Thiago Ilori has admitted he’s relieved at having moved to Aston Villa on loan. The youngster completed a last minute departure from Anfield in the summer transfer window, and is happy that he’ll now get his chance to appear in England’s top flight.
