Emmanuel Frimpong mocks Steven Gerrard on Instagram

Emmanuel Frimpong is one of the most prolific professional footballers when it comes to controversial social media memes, and the Arsenal reject has been at his devious best again after uploading an Instagram post mocking Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.

The 34-year-old midfielder announced earlier this week that he'll be leaving Anfield - and probably the Premier League - upon the expiry of his contract at the end of the season, prompting a flurry of messages paying tribute to his illustrious career on Merseyside.

Gerrard won an array of different domestic and European trophies during his time with the Reds including the League Cup, FA Cup, UEFA Cup, UEFA Super Cup and most importantly the Champions League, but one piece of silverware that has evaded him is the Premier League title.

Focusing on that particular absence in the former England captain's collection of accolades, Frimpong decided to share a photoshopped picture of Gerrard alongside Manchester United flop Anderson draped in league winners medals with the caption: 'Man like Anderson Done what Stevie wanted to do on more than 1 occasion'.

Unsurprisingly, the disrespectful post prompted a furious response from Liverpool supporters, angered by the Ghana international's actions, which also featured a dog-tag round the Kop legend's neck boasting that he 'finished above Manchester United in 2014'.

Frimpong was quick to delete the image after receiving a load of online abuse, which included people poking fun at his own career which has taken the 22-year-old to the Russian Premier League where he now plays for Ufa after being released by Barnsley at the end of 2013/14.

Gerrard isn't likely to be too bothered about all the furore, though, as he looks ahead to the next stage of his career which - if latest reports are to be believed - is set to take him across the Atlantic for a spell playing in Major League Soccer from July onwards.
