Bruce Grobbelaar has warned Liverpool that they could be making a big mistake by letting Steven Gerrard leave the club in the summer.

The England international has opted to call time on his Anfield career and is set to move to the MLS at the end of the season.

However, former Reds goalkeeper Grobbelaar can’t understand why the Merseyside outfit have not done more to keep their skipper at the club.

“I, and many of the other former players, are surprised that the Fenway Sports Group [Liverpool’s owners], and the management structure, don’t want Steven Gerrard to stay until the end of his career,” Grobbelaar told talkSPORT.

“I would give him games week in and week out. He’s still a leader and we still need him. Liverpool still rely on him a lot, he delivers, as he did against Wimbledon.

“He was the only one who came up to scratch and got the two goals.

“What are they going to rely on next season? Who is going to be leading this club? If you don’t have a person like Gerrard, then the club might be in disarray.”
