November 29 is a special date for Liverpool fans.

It marks the day Steven Gerrard made his debut for the club against Blackburn Rovers in 1998 and began an incredible journey.

From an exciting 18-year-old to one of the best midfielders in the world, the Englishman spent 17 years at Anfield and earned legendary status.

Gerrard had everything. Fast, powerful, creative and lethal from range, he combined all the best traits of a central midfielder and was nigh-on impossible to play against on his day.

Leadership was another one of Gerrard's strengths and the way he inspired his teammates with his performances on a weekly basis made him the perfect captain.

Thursday 29 November, 2018, marked 20 years since Gerrard's debut for Liverpool and since then Kopites have been paying tribute to arguably the best player in their history.

Instagram posts, stories and tweets have all been dedicated to the 38-year-old, who hung up his boots in 2016 and has since become a manager.

One Liverpool fan, however, has gone above and beyond with their tribute to Gerrard.

A 25-tweet thread is doing the rounds on Twitter detailing Gerrard's personal accolades at Liverpool and what fellow professionals have said about him down the years.

It includes quotes from the likes of Lionel Messi, Frank Lampard, Jose Mourinho, Sir Alex Ferguson and Gary Neville.

So far the thread has only racked up 500 retweets, but it's a very interesting read and clearly a lot of time has been put into it.
