Liverpool supporters crowned Steven Gerrard the club’s greatest player of all-time in an LFCTV social media vote on Tuesday night. With the captain set to call time on his 17-year stint in the first team at Anfield this summer, fans were asked to have their say on exactly where he stands in the pantheon of Reds greats.
Using the #LFCgreatest hashtag on Twitter, as well as a poll on this website, we pitted Gerrard against five other legendary figures in Ian Rush, Graeme Souness, John Barnes, Kenny Dalglish and Billy Liddell. And the Huyton-born midfielder was the runaway favourite, picking up 66 per cent of your votes as the best to ever wear the shirt.
Dalglish came in second place, with ‘the King’ backed to win by 25 per cent of voters, while third-placed Rushie got 4 per cent.
