    Good player but a tad overrated. Not as good as Fat Frank.

    not gonna happen

    wish him all the best... just a shame we couldn't win the premiership with him

    A good servant to the club, but overrated for his country due to lack of any better English players.

    Rodgers the idiot should have kept the same team from midweek but the sentimental fool had to bring back Gerrard. Thanks for the memories stevie but you're holding the team back. Hopefully we'll see you back at the club in a coaching capacity.

    Great player who I think is fed up with Rodgers. This holding position has ruined him for last couple of years that Rodgers has put him in. That's the reason he has faded and not fulfilled potential in last couple of years.

    Rodgers is a poor manager who has stemmed Gerrard's natural attacking ability for over 2 years. Rodgers will be sacked end of season. Good luck Gerrard

    Best years were 5 years ago.

    Slowly looked poor quality for the last 5 years.

    Oh well liverpool have allen and henderson as replacements LOL.

    Any mention of where he's going? Overseas looks the best bet..

    No the don't. They are both owned by Abu Dhabi United Group under the holding company "city football group" which holds an 80% stake in NYCFC... #fail

    It's time to dump him. He's well past it at the top level. It happens to every footballer.

    Apparently a lot of interest from the MLS with LA Galaxy tipped as favourites

    when Dean Hammond shows you up you know it's time to go!

    Liverpool Football Club can confirm Steven Gerrard is to leave the club … Liverpool Football Club can confirm Steven Gerrard is to leave the club at the end of the 2014-15 season.The Reds captain will bring the curtain down on a glittering Anfield career that has spanned nearly 17 years and included 10 trophies, as well as 695 appearances and 180 goals to date since joining the club's youth system aged eight.Gerrard will not retire from professional football at the conclusion of the 2014-15 season. No decision on his new club has been made yet, but he will continue his career outside the United Kingdom and at a side that will not bring him into direct competition with Liverpool.The 34-year-old admits it is with a heavy heart he will depart Liverpool, describing the decision as the 'toughest of his life', but has chosen to make it now to avoid speculation about his future.Until then, the No.8 insists he will continue to concentrate all his efforts on helping Brendan Rodgers' side achieve both domestic and European success.Explaining his decision, Gerrard said: "This has been the toughest decision of my life and one which both me and my family have agonised over for a good deal of time."I am making the announcement now so that the manager and the team are not distracted by stories or speculation about my future."Liverpool Football Club has been such a huge part of all our lives for so long and saying goodbye is going to be difficult, but I feel it's something that's in the best interests of all involved, including my family and the club itself."I'm going to carry on playing and although I can't confirm at this stage where that will be, I can say it will be somewhere that means I won't be playing for a competing club and will not therefore be lining up against Liverpool - that is something I could never contemplate."My decision is completely based on my wish to experience something different in my career and life and I also want to make sure that I have no regrets when my playing career is eventually over."I can't thank Brendan, the owners and everyone at the club enough for how they've handled this and I am leaving on great terms. Also, I would like to thank my teammates and all the staff for their help and continued support."It is a very special place to be part of. It is my sincere hope and wish that one day I can return to serve Liverpool again, in whatever capacity best helps the club."One point that is important to make is that from now until the last kick of the last game of the season, I will be as fully committed to the team as I ever have been and giving everything I have to help Liverpool win games."My final message is for the people who make Liverpool Football Club the greatest in the world - the supporters."It has been a privilege to represent you, as a player and as captain. I have cherished every second of it and it is my sincere wish to finish this season and my Liverpool career on a high."

    Can't believe he is going

    So it's official, Gerrard has never won a Premiership, Maybe he'll be loaned to City? Then he might get one.!!!.

    As much as I hate him, I respect him at the same time, Think maybe it's a good decision for him, Although maybe she should retire?.

    I have explained it already. Man City FC don't own NYCFC. But yes it is essentially all run by Mansoor. What gets me is how/why they called it NYCFC as surely it should be NYCSC!

    Quite. Red Bull need to replace Henry and with Lampard and Gerrard at rival clubs, the New York Derby might be a thing!

    Give us time. We've only recently started to own The Premier League.

    I think he's still got a year or 2 at the top level. I honestly believe he could go to Madrid or Barca and play a deep lying midfield role. Not every game, but every other perhaps. Can't say he couldn't do a better job than Busquetts.

    Could easily play a role. Why go to MLS? He's not short of a bob i'm sure. Not the driving midfielder he once was, but sitting back and playing out, could play for anyone. Pirlo has never had great legs or engine.

    no chance! He cost Liverpool the title as he panicked on the ball being last man!. Alonso gave him the freedom in his peak, something he's not got back since Xabi left. Always considered him to be a glorified Kevin Nolan driven by hometown fuel. He is an Evertonian, like.

    A glorified Kevin Nolan? Just wow. I'm a big KN fan mind, but just wow.

    He could play for anyone in World. No danger. And a league title isn't won Or lost in one game. Sure there was a chance or two Suarez or Sturridge missed in certain games that could have won them 3points rather than a draw.

    Was thinking today its a shame that he'll always be remembered for that.

    But he could play for anyone.

    I think Gary Neville should give him one of his Premiership medals.

    Probably not a good idea, he'd probably let them slip
