About time! Gerrard receives his overdue MBE

12 months after Liverpool’s captain was widely tipped to be awarded an MBE (an oversight according to the blue-blood brigade down South), Steven Gerrard has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s New Years Honours List.

Following The Reds’ UEFA Champions League success over Milan in May 2005, Gerrard was expected to be awarded the MBE.

He has now been awarded the honour in the New Year list and offered his gratitude to those who have helped him to become one of the game’s most famous players.

“I am absolutely thrilled and honoured to receive this recognition for playing a game I’ve loved all my life,” said Gerrard.

“I’d like to accept this on behalf of all those people who have been so supportive to me throughout my career, all my team-mates over the years, everyone at Liverpool Football Club, everyone at Team England, all my family and friends, and all those coaches who have helped me since I was eight.”

Well done Stevie. You’ve done us proud kid.
