14 alternative things we can remember Steven Gerrard for, through pictures he'd rather forget

Steven Gerrard is retiring after an illustrious footballing career.

The Liverpool legend was a true great of the Premier League before his move to the LA Galaxy in 2015 – his second and final club after 17 years at Anfield.

So what will Stevie G be remembered for? Will it be his European heroics in Istanbul, his unerring love and leadership for Liverpool or the heart-breaking slip that cost a Premier League title?

Well, after a root around in the archive, we’ve come up with a few alternative options. (Sorry for finding these Stevie)

1. His love for colourful polos

You’re never getting that pen on that T-shirt mate.

2. His unwillingness to play ball with Gordon Brown

Not now Chancellor.

3. His fondness for Wayne Rooney’s dance moves

Perhaps Rooney was inspiring Peter Crouch here.

4. His cap allergy

Easy Kevin you’ll mess up his hairdo.

5. His willingness to hurt his fellow England teammates

Easy Stevie we all know you want to take the free kicks…

6. Openly telling Frank Lampard he’s better than him

Don’t cry Frank.

7. That special moment he shared with John Arne Riise

Not on the pitch chaps.

8. The special moment he shared with himself

You wish someone would look at you like that.

9. His ability to carry off Umbro in the countryside

There’s so many questions raised by this photo.

10. His spitting capabilities

Gosh that’s a powerful stream.

Seriously – he’s like an archerfish.

11. His ability to scowl snow into submission

Not a single flake dared to land on him that day. True story.

12. His peacock impression

He’s one of few people allowed to have a bit of arrogance to be fair.

13. His ability to free his mind from The Matrix

So that’s how he managed all those long impossible passes…

14. Just for this absurd photo with Michael Owen

Sorry for this one Stevie – but what a bromance.
