It feels like just yesterday we were watching an awkward kid with a buzz cut running around the Anfield pitch. That kid would grow up to lift the European Cup in the most dramatic fashion and would end up being a Liverpool legend. That kid is Steven Gerrard, who turns 40 years old today.

Let’s take a look at how the footballing world is celebrating one of the best midfielders to ever play the game.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp rounded up his staff and squad to sing happy birthday to the club legend. What an adorable team. How can you not love them?

What better way to celebrate Stevie G’s birthday than by watching some of his biggest goals in the Champions League? Whether it’s against Olympiacos, AC Milan, or Real Madrid. He always showed up in big European Nights.

Not only was Gerrard amazing for Liverpool, he put in some killer performances for England as well. Especially this one, against Germany.

Steven Gerrard currently manages Rangers in Scotland.

Former teammate Luis Garcia wishes Gerrard a happy birthday.
