Few players come to represent a club quite like Steven Gerrard symbolises Liverpool.
Gerrard won nine trophies across a 17-year playing career for the Reds, scoring 186 goals in an amazing 710 appearances, but it was the intangibles that made him special: the ability to grab a team by the scruff of the neck and single-handedly drag them to glory – never more evident than that famous night in Istanbul.

Roy Keane was on very good form.
