Rodgers Stands up for Steven Gerrard


Rodgers insists  Steven still has a key role to play in the remainder of the campaign.

Questions have been asked about how Steven Gerrard will be used up until he goes to the USA, many are saying the team performs better without him.

“I think it has been really unfair on the boy. This is a guy who has been – and still is – a wonderful player,” said Rodgers. 

When he was out injured we had people trying to sensationalize a story as to whether he would get in the team or not but Steven was unfit.

“People were trying to write him off when he was not even back fit. “Maybe some are trying to make a negative story on him, which couldn’t be further from the truth”.

Liverpool’s 12th Man view

The fact is Steven Gerrard has and will always be Red through and through, even when better options were open to him years ago he stayed firm with Liverpool and our fans.

“This day and age loyalty is not a something a player has on his priority list”

He has shown total loyalty to Liverpool FC,  as supports we should also pay him the respect he deserves, respecting the fact that has now chosen to move toward the twilight of his playing days in top flight football.  He has given us the best days of his talent and to this end we will always have a place in our hearts for Liverpool’s number 8.

Steven Gerrard, is still a player that can make a big impact, his ability and experience brings and extra element to the team that will be missed.  You’ll Never Walk Alone
