“It was so nice to be back and to hear You’ll Never Walk Alone. Also, it was a great atmosphere with the Celtic fans as well – it was a great afternoon.
“It was nice to be on good grass again. The emotions took over and adrenaline and everything [else] – it was nice to run around, yes.

“To walk out [for the] first time from the locker room into Anfield and to [make] the trip together with the legends team – a lot of memories came back. It was nice to relive them again.”
He added: “It was really nice to be part of it. When I’m called, I will be ready to come again.”
Liverpool legend and one of the best midfielders to feature in the history of the Premier League Steven Gerrard expressed his feelings after scoring a goal for Liverpool in ages.
“Listen, it feels good when I score in the back garden against Lio!
“If you love football, if you love the game, if you love this club, I’ll never get tired of that.
“There was a bit of pressure on me! I took my son to football this morning and he scored a couple, so he had said to me, ‘You best score today or you’re going to have to buy me something.’
“At least I’ll save a few quid by getting on the scoresheet,” Gerrard said as quoted by Liverpool. (ANI)
