Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard will pull on a Reds shirt again - for the club's 'Legends' side in January.

The 35-year-old midfielder, currently on a post-season break from Major League Soccer with the Los Angeles Galaxy, has spoken with manager Jurgen Klopp about training at Melwood while he is back on Merseyside.

However, he will be playing for the club at the Sydney ANZ on January 7 alongside former team-mates like Jamie Carragher, Dietmar Hamann and John Arne Riise - managed by former manager Gerard Houllier - against a team of Australian counterparts.

"It will be great to play with the official Liverpool FC Legends," Gerrard told liverpoolfc.com.

"The squad looks like it's a great set of lads. It'll be good to get on the pitch with them.

"Our fans are the best and to play in front of them again will be emotional, I'm sure."
