Current and former Liverpool players alike have taken to social media to wish Steven Gerrard many happy returns, as the midfielder celebrates his 35th birthday today.
The day has also allowed for many of the men that the skipper has played alongside down the years to once again pay tribute to Gerrard, as he prepares to begin the twilight of his career in MLS with LA Galaxy.
The former England international’s final season on Merseyside has not ended in the manner befitting of the legacy he will leave behind, but that hasn’t stopped us thanking the man that will go down as one of the greatest the game has ever seen, on numerous occasions.
The farewell that greeted him following his last appearance at Anfield would have brought a tear to the eye of almost everyone in the ground that day. Even the Crystal Palace fans made sure that he knew how much of an impact he has had on football in this country during his 17 year career.
Here are some of the birthday wishes that have headed Gerrard’s way today:
