Twitter reacts to news of Gerrard exit

The news that Steven Gerrard will leave Liverpool at the end of the season has prompted plenty of reaction online.

Fans of Liverpool’s iconic captain have filled Twitter timelines with tributes to the player.

Many team-mates, both current and former, have joined in the praise.

Even committed Arsenal fan Piers Morgan wished Gerrard well, as did Match of the Day frontman Gary Lineker.

Naturally there were also jokes.

And football writer Miguel Delaney made a very good point about there being five long months to go before the end of the season, although some people are already dreaming of the perfect exit.
