Steven Gerrard says he will never forget his Anfield send off after the Liverpool captain said goodbye to his adoring supporters on Saturday.

The Liverpool skipper was denied a winning end to his career on Merseyside after a 3-1 defeat by Crystal Palace on Saturday evening.

Jason Puncheon cancelled out Adam Lallana’s opener for the home side before Wilfried Zaha scored 22 seconds after coming off the bench before Glenn Murray netted a late penalty.

However, the result didn’t appear to take the gloss of what was a special occasion for the 34-year-old midfielder, and Gerrard took to Instagram to thank everyone connected with the club on Sunday morning.

Gerrard posted the above photo and wrote: “Thank you to Liverpool football club for an incredible day . Thank you to my team mates, ex team mates , all the staff I have worked with over the last 27 years and all the Lfc fans across the world . Me and my family will never forget my send off at anfield YNWA”

The Liverpool skipper has scored eight goals and has made one assist in 27 Premier League appearances this season.
