Steven Gerrard was the star of the show as a Liverpool Legends side defeated AC Milan Glorie at Anfield on Saturday.

The Reds legend scored a late winner to secure a 3-2 win for Liverpool in an event which raised around £1 million for charity.

More than 50,000 fans attended the match as Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Robbie Fowler and a host of other Liverpool heroes faced off against some memorable former AC Milan stars.

The likes of Kaka, Andrea Pirlo and Cafu all lined up for the Italians.

And Gerrard, who was named Man of the Match, enjoyed the ‘special feeling’ of yet another winner at the Kop end.

“It’s always a special time to come to Anfield, especially when it’s full, and just put the kit on,” Gerrard said at full-time, per Liverpool’s website.

“To play against Milan with all my ex-teammates, and to get the winner, is obviously a special feeling.”


Gerrard scores a late winner

The Rangers manager dispatched a low shot into the corner with a minute remaining of the match, capping a fine day for everyone in attendance.

Fan footage of his goal has also emerged.

Goals from Fowler and Djibril Cisse had given Liverpool a 2-0 lead but they were pegged back.

Pirlo rolled back the years with a wonderful free-kick before a late Guiseppe Paccaro goal seemed to have secured a 2-2 draw for AC Milan.

But then Gerrard - who else? - stepped up when he was needed the most, as he so often did during his playing career.

The 38-year-old admitted afterwards that he is keeping a close eye on Liverpool’s title race as Jurgen Klopp’s side continue to battle with Manchester City.

He added: “It’s in the back of my mind; I’ve got a day job now and all my focus is obviously on Rangers, but I’ve got one eye on Anfield and I just hope the lads can go and get us over the line because I’d be the happiest man in the world.”
