The ex-Liverpool captain became the latest player to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame. He was selected from a 23-person list through the vote of fans and a Premier League panel.
He is the first Liverpool player to be included in the Hall of the Fame which has been started to celebrate the league’s finest players since the start of the league in 1992. Gerrard started his career at Liverpool’s academy and climbed the ranks to become one of the best players in the history of Liverpool. He made his professional debut at the age of 18 in 1998.

He played for the Reds in 17 seasons in the top flight and played around 504 games while scoring 120 goals and 92 assists as well. Many of the goals were important for the fans and have given them chances to celebrate. He couldn’t win the Premier League with Liverpool but he did win the UEFA Champions League in 2005 and it was one of the best matches that Gerrard ever played.
Gerrard is the seventh player to be inducted into the Hall of Fame after Frank Lampard, Dennis Bergkamp, Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer, Roy Keane, and Eric Cantona were included earlier.
