Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers paid tribute to Steven Gerrard as “one of the best of his generation” after the Reds’ 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
Gerrard’s final games in a Liverpool shirt before he departs to LA Galaxy this summer will be against Crystal Palace at Anfield next Sunday and away at Stoke City on Sunday, 24th May.
Yesterday’s draw at Stamford Bridge effectively ruled the Reds out of Champions League qualification for next season, but that won’t stop the tributes continue to pour in as Gerrard’s Liverpool career comes to an end.
Rodgers said, "He's a player that makes the big contributions when needed. I've said before he's irreplaceable but we need to find the solutions, one way or the other."
Gerrard’s headed equaliser on Sunday was his 185th goal of his Liverpool career, having made 708 appearances in all competitions.
