Just hours after scoring two first half penalties in Liverpool’s disappointing 2-2 draw with Leicester City at Anfield, the Reds skipper’s future is the subject of increased speculation.

At 34-years-old and with Liverpool competing to be consistently among the top four of the Premier League and Champions League participators, many have questioned Gerrard’s ability to contribute to the team.

Liverpool fans have taken to social media to react to the news that Gerrard, who made his debut for the Reds in 1998, could be set to end his one-club status and leave Anfield.

Gerrard has scored 180 goals in 695 appearances for Liverpool so far, helping the club to one European Cup, one UEFA Cup, two FA Cups, three League Cups and two UEFA Super Cups.

We’ve rounded up a selection of reactions from fans below, which is mostly an accepting of facts but nostalgic appreciation of one of the club’s greatest ever players.
