Steven Gerrard is one of the few players who can be regarded as a Premier League legend despite never actually winning the title.
Producing so many special moments of greatness and remaining so loyal to his boyhood club Liverpool makes the former England captain a rare specimen in the modern game.
And although we can almost guarantee the Premier League and more specifically, Anfield hasn't seen the last of Gerrard in a non-playing capacity, the 36-year-old's days as a footballer are inevitably coming to an end.

Gerrard has less than six months remaining on his current deal with LA Galaxy and could well hang up his boots after the MLS season concludes later this year.
While there is little doubt Liverpool fans would welcome their hero back to the club with open arms, Gerrard has admitted he is yet to receive an offer regarding a potential return.

Speaking to virtual reality company Laduma, the Galaxy star confirmed he is in constant talks with manager Jurgen Klopp but there is no agreement in place.
Gerrard said: "People need to understand that Jurgen Klopp is his own man, he's got his own team of people around him, that he is very happy and content with.
"Of course, I've got a huge Liverpool connection and Liverpool is in my heart and always will be but there's nothing to really comment on.
"There's no future decision to work with Klopp, I get on really well with him, we're in contact but there's no job opportunity there at the moment."
Gerrard's current side are sat in third place in the MLS' Western Conference but could go top if they win their three games in hand over leaders FC Dallas.
It is just the Englishman's second campaign in America but it could well be his last and Gerrard is keen to ensure he doesn't take anything for granted as the dreaded R-word approaches.
"There is absolutely nothing to say on my future beyond this MLS season at the moment," he added.
"I know I'm in the twilight, I know I'm coming to the end pretty soon. I just want to try and enjoy every last moment really. The one thing I'm going to miss [is] walking on to the pitch.
"I'm going to miss that buzz very much because that's what I play the game for."
For the time being though, Klopp's attention will be firmly on Liverpool's fourth game of pre-season when they take on Championship side Huddersfield tonight at the John Smith's Stadium.
