Having already dipped his toe into the media world with BT Sport in 2015 for their Champions League coverage, Gerrard now works as a pundit 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, Gerrard 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, Gerrard 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.
In July 2017 herepresented England in Star Sixes, a new six-a-side indoor international tournament at the O2 in London featuring some of the world’s most iconic footballers.
Away from football Steven Gerrard works as an ambassador for Angel Revive Alkaline Water which is a premium revitalising drink with natural electrolytes.
November 2017 saw Gerrard 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 manager of Scottish giants Rangers and had a successful debut season finishing runners-up to Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.
