Kop legend looks set to reach another milestone.
Steven Gerrard is set to join the Liverpool immortals when he plays against Bolton Wanderers on Wednesday night, becoming just the third man to make 700 appearances.
Gerrard sat out the Reds 2-0 win over West Ham at the weekend but Brendan Rodgers says his talisman is fit once again for the FA Cup fourth round replay.
“Steven is fine and has trained great. But if it was too much of a risk, we have other players to come in. We manage the recovery process for Steven individually and that allows him to maybe miss a game and come back with no ill-effects,” he said, reports CaughtOffside.
“Seven hundred is an incredible achievement and not sure will ever happen again at this club.
“The professionalism isn’t just about the games, he has devoted every day to his football.”
Only Gerrard’s former teammate Jamie Carragher and Ian Callaghan, both 737 and 857 appearances respectively, have worn the famous Red shirt more times than the current captain.
And Gerrard will be looking to get as many appearances in as possible as he prepares to leave Liverpool at the end of this season after signing a pre-contract with MLS side LA Galaxy.
That could mean the living, Liverpool legend has to accept third place in the all time appearances rankings – unless he just so happens to return at some point in the future on-loan, as has been suggested.
