Steven Gerrard Honoured By Teammates With Crushing 3-1 Defeat
LIVERPOOL honoured arguably one of their best players to put on the red jersey by losing convincingly against Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace.
Gerrard’s final game at Anfield was marked by his teammates with the sort of insipid performance the midfielder spent much of his career guarding the club’s passionate fans against.
After 17 years of service at the club, winning countless trophies, Brendan Rodger’s side were determined to put together a fitting performance alongside their ‘Captain Fantastic’ by losing 3-1 to Crystal Palace, famed the world over for not being nearly as good as Liverpool.
“We were amazing out there today,” Liverpool manager Rodger’s told reporters, lying through his teeth, “Stevie is a big loss to the club so we thought why not allow ourselves to suffer a big loss as a mark of respect”.
Rodgers wouldn’t be drawn on who he would bring in to replace Gerrard but insisted they would spend over the odds on unproven talent.
A sign of the high regard Gerrard is held in by the footballing fraternity came just before kick off on Saturday evening when rival Manchester United fans flew a banner over Anfield which read ‘Good Luck You Scouse Bastard’.
Gerrard is expected to be placed in a retirement home in California later this summer.
