Where is Steven Gerrard now?
An Anfield legend, Steven Gerrard or ‘Stevie G’ as the Liverpool fans affectionately know him, retired from playing professional football in 2016 after a year spent playing in the MLS with LA Galaxy alongside fellow ex-Premier League stars Robbie Keane and Ashley Cole.
Despite never winning the Premier League title, he still had a distinguished career winning 114 caps for England as well as the FA Cup twice, the League Cup three times, the UEFA Cup, the Super Cup and the Champions League for Liverpool.

Having already dipped his toe in the media world with BT Sport in 2015 for their Champions League coverage, upon retiring from playing he stepped up his pundit work across the networks, following in the footsteps of other former Liverpool team mates Jamie Carragher, Michael Owen, Jamie Redknapp and Steve McManaman.
Alongside his media commitments, Gerrard worked within the famous Liverpool academy as a youth coach whilst working towards completing his UEFA A coaching license.
Prior to joining the youth setup at Liverpool, he had already passed most of his UEFA coaching badges which included time spent in the United States coaching the LA Galaxy under 18s side.
In November 2016, Gerrard started provisional talks with League One side MK Dons regarding the vacant manager’s job but he turned it down as he felt the opportunity had come too soon for him.
He was also linked with a move to Australia and a reunion with former manager Brendan Rodgers at Scottish side Celtic.
For the 2017/18 season Gerrard took charge of the Liverpool under 18’s side having already impressed manager Jurgen Klopp and academy director Alex Inglethorpe with his application and his work ethic.
Alongside his coaching duties and media work, he also worked for the club in an ambassadorial role where he promoted the Liverpool FC brand across the world.
In 2017 Gerrard was awarded the Freedom of the City of Liverpool which is the city’s highest civic honour as well as being inducted in the National Football Museum’s Hall of Fame.
That year he was also named in UEFA’s Team of the Century which is “an all-time XI” made up from players who have featured most in their Team of the Year.
He was one of only two players within the team that had never played for Real Madrid or Barcelona – the other was Bayern Munich legend Phillip Lahm.
In May 2018, Gerrard was appointed in his current role as manager of Scottish giants Rangers finishing runners-up to Celtic in his first season.
