Steven Gerrard is a player that all football fans remember fondly and Declan Rice has been discussing some of his favourite memories.
Speaking with Goal on YouTube, the 23-year-old was discussing his memories of our former captain wearing Adidas Predator boots: “Stevie G, when he was wearing these and when he was coming through.
“How many goals has Gerrard scored! One goal that sticks out, I think he scored it at Goodison Park, when he dropped his shoulder and whizzed one into the top corner and I think he was wearing these boots that day”.
Our former No.8 was smashing goals in from every angle, from a very young age and some of his earlier strikes for the club have been somewhat forgotten.
Any opportunity to watch a reel of all his goals for the Reds is never one that should be passed up and the Merseyside Derby finish from 2001 is certainly a memorable strike.
With some muted links between the West Ham midfielder and ourselves, perhaps emulating the legacy of our club legend could be enough to convince him on a move to Anfield.
