Jordan Henderson is set to take over as Liverpool captain this week, following the departure of Steven Gerrard, and Reds supporters have reacted favourably to the news.

Henderson will take over from Gerrard after the 35-year-old’s move to LA Galaxy this summer.

The former Sunderland midfielder often filled in for Gerrard last season, and showed strong signs of leadership both on and off field.

Here’s the best of the social media reaction to Henderson’s likely appointment.

Meanwhile, Henderson’s appointment is due to be announced once Rodgers decides on his replacement as vice-captain, with Mamadou Sakho, James Milner, Lucas Leiva and Martin Skrtel considered for the role.

Liverpool supporters have also had their say on who the Reds should choose as Henderson’s deputy.
