HALL OF FAME: Steven Gerrard immortalised in Premier League history

HALL OF FAME: Steven Gerrard immortalised in Premier League history

 

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has become the seventh player inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.

The midfielder made over 500 appearances for his boyhood club and scored 120 goals in the Red shirt.

He added 92 assists on top of that in a stellar 16 years at Anfield where he was club captain.

Gerrard won the 2005 Champions League in Istanbul where he led his team back from 3-0 down at half-time.

His goal after half-time and his iconic celebration of encouraging the supporters sparked the revival.

A thunderbolt in the FA Cup Final in 2006 saved Liverpool from losing to West Ham United.

His late strike made it 3-3 and took the game to extra time and penalties.

The Whiston-born man missed out on the Premier League title finishing runner-up three times.

 

England, America and back to Liverpool

 

Gerrard won 114 caps for his country, scoring 21 goals, and captained England on several occasions.

In 2007, he was awarded an MBE by Queen Elizabeth II and an honorary fellowship from Liverpool John Moores University in 2008.

He joined LA Galaxy when his Liverpool contract retired and spent 18 months in Major League Soccer.

Following his time in America, Gerrard returned to Liverpool as a youth coach.

He took charge of the under-18 side before moving on to Scottish side Rangers in 2018.

This season, he led them to a first Premiership title in 10 years - their 55th all-time.

Not only that, they went the enter league season unbeaten and done the double over rivals Celtic.

 

Premier League Hall of Fame

 

Steven Gerrard becomes the seventh inductee in the Premier League Hall of Fame after Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer were initially announced.

After a vote, Roy Keane and Eric Cantona were picked as the next two to enter the hall.

Frank Lampard and Dennis Bergkamp followed, with Gerrard within the first batch.

The honour was created to recognise players who have made important contributions in the division since its creation in 1992.
