Major league Soccer side LA Galaxy has taken a full page ad in the Liverpool Echo to thank Liverpool FC legend Steven Gerard for signing.

The Reds skipper will be ending a 17-year spell at Liverpool FC by moving to LA Galaxy in July. However, in an usual move, the US side published a thank you to Gerard in his local paper.

The ad celebrates Gerard’s Champions League win in Istanbul a decade ago, reading: “Ten years ago today, on one night in Istanbul, a leader became a legend.

"For the last 17 years, Liverpool has backed its loyal captain. To a club that set the example, from a city honored to carry that legacy, Thank You."

Gerard played his final game for Liverpool on Saturday in a disappointing 6-1 defeat to Stoke.
