Arguably Liverpool’s greatest player of the 21st century, Steven Gerrard celebrates his 40th birthday today (May 30, 2020). Born in Whiston, Merseyside, the England icon is the ultimate one-club man and made his debut for boyhood side Liverpool in 1998. Widely regarded as one of the best players to ever come out from England, the footballer has been the cornerstone of the Merseyside club for several years and has led them to various honours including a Champions League triumph in 2005.
