Steven Gerrard is unlikely to complete a return to Liverpool on loan in January, according to MLS commissioner Don Garber. 

As reported by the Telegraph, Garber claims he hasn't heard that a possible return to Anfield for the veteran was being contemplated. 

The former Liverpool captain only left Merseyside in favour of a move to LA Galaxy at the end of last season, however it appears that he won't follow in the footsteps of the likes of David Beckham and Thierry Henry, who previously spent short-term spells away from the US during their careers.

It remains to be seen, of course, as to whether the Liverpool hierarchy press ahead with a move for their former skipper in the coming months, but it's seemingly unlikely that the 35-year-old will star on Merseyside anytime soon. 

When asked about the prospect of Gerrard returning to Liverpool on loan, Garber stated: “I don't think so. And I had not heard that was something that was being contemplated."

Time to move on 

Let's be honest, with Gerrard's Liverpool affiliation, he's always going to be linked with a return back to the club. Ultimately, though, it would be wrong for the Reds hierarchy to swoop for their former skipper on a short-term deal.

At the end of the day, both Gerrard and Liverpool have to move on, so there should be no going back. Don't get me wrong, once his playing days come to an end, there may well come a point when Gerrard completes an emotional return to Anfield.

Perhaps, though, that shouldn't be in a playing capacity. Gerrard's career with the Reds was a remarkable one, but it should stay in the past.
