Steven Gerrard has posted three photos on Instagram after returning to Melwood for his first training session under Jurgen Klopp on Monday.

The LA Galaxy midfielder is maintaining his fitness levels during the MLS off-season and caught up with his former Liverpool teammates for the first time this morning.

Gerrard posted photos with Lucas Leiva, Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho - and you can view them all, along with their captions, by scrolling down this page.

Although Gerrard is back training with Liverpool's first team, Klopp has made it clear that the former England captain will not be offered a short-term loan deal.

Now 35, Klopp clearly feels it's in Liverpool's best interests to continue building without Gerrard.

Gerrard's Instagram posts

Gerrard's first Instagram post was a photo of himself training alongside Lucas, with the caption: "Nice to join in with lads today 👍 @leivalucas 😁"

The all-action midfielder then posted a photo of himself alongside Sturridge, who appeared as a second-half substitute during Sunday's 1-0 win over Swansea City, and wrote: "Catching up ..goal machine ⚽️ @danielsturridge."

His third and final post was of himself and Coutinho. No words needed this time, just a couple of emojis: "🎩😉 @phil.coutinho"

Sturridge, meanwhile, has already returned the favour to Gerrard, posting the same photo with the following comment: "The legend is back 👌🏾😎 @stevengerrard"

Former Liverpool midfielder Didi Hamann warned Klopp earlier this month that Gerrard's potential return - even to training - would act as an unnecessary distraction.

It remains to be seen whether or not that'll be the case, but it seems Klopp has everything under control right now.
