Gerrard is Liverpool's 'greatest ever'

Published -1 Comments

Football News

Yesterday Steven Gerrard confirmed he would remain at Anfield for the rest of his career and, once again, the debate is raging as to whether or not the talismanic midfielder is Liverpool's finest player of all time.

As a club with such rich history Liverpool, naturally, have possessed a number of players who can lay claim to that title, with the likes of Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush always mentioned at times like this.

And Dalglish certainly believes Gerrard can now be regarded as the best player to ever ply his trade in front of the famous Kop.

"I wouldn't disagree," said the Liverpool boss when the suggestion was put to him during his weekly press conference.

With this in mind, GiveMeFootball decided to ask the fans if they agree with the assertions of Dalglish - and others - that Gerrard really is the Reds' greatest.

The answer was an emphatic 'yes', with the 31-year-old winning 92 percent of almost 10,000 votes cast by Liverpool supporters.

It says quite something of the talents of Gerrard that he can be held in such high regard while still very much an integral member of Dalglish's squad, and with a number of years ahead of him before retirement.

The Whiston born England international made his debut for the Reds as a teenager in 1998, and was appointed club captain by Gerard Houllier in October 2003.

He has played a total of 564 games for Liverpool, in which he has netted 144 goals, and famously lifted the Champions League crown in 2005.
