Steven Gerrard has begun his new job at Rangers, but the club legend witnessed some stunning goals in his season as Liverpool U18s manager.
It came as a surprise when Gerrard confirmed he was taking the Rangers job, having seemingly been thriving at the Reds’ academy.
A hungry individual who is always looking for fresh challenges, the Liverpool legend will be desperate to make an impression in Scotland.
That was certainly the case with the U18s in the 2017/18, as Gerrard got his side playing some attractive football, picking up plenty of wins on their way to a third-placed finish in the U18 Premier League.
They topped the table at the end of 2017, and although results tailed off a little, it was still a positive campaign.
The above video highlights some of the quality of football on show, with some memorable goals scored as the season progressed.
Counting down from No. 10, the footage begins with a clinical strike by midfielder Edvard Tagseth, before a showcase of Adam Lewis’ finishing ability against Wolves.
Lewis’ superb solo effort against Sunderland in December makes it in at No. 8, just behind a well-taken Liam Millar strike.
Glen McAuley proved his calmness in front of goal with a lovely side-footed finish, and some individual Rafa Camacho brilliance sneaks into the top five.
Curtis Jones, one of the most impressive youngsters at Liverpool, sees his superb solo strike against Middlesbrough in at No. 4.
The top three starts with yet another individual effort, this time from Canadian forward Millar, and taking the runner-up spot is Camacho’s long-range beauty at home to Boro.
Rated the U18s’ best goal of the season is Jones’ ruthless volley in the ‘mini derby’ against Everton last September, although it’s debatable as to whether it should be.
It was a very entertaining campaign on the whole, and Gerrard’s replacement will have a difficult job on his hands.
