LFC Rewind: Gerrard makes his debut

On November 29, 1998, a fresh-faced teenager by the name of Steven Gerrard made his debut for Liverpool.

Coming on as a substitute against Blackburn Rovers, he took the first step in forging a legacy few men will ever match.
 
The only player in Reds history to feature in the club's all-time top five for both appearances and goals, the talismanic midfielder clocked up an astonishing 710 games and found the target 186 times.
 
He inspired Liverpool on countless occassions but in 2005 Champions League final in Istanbul he surpassed his own incredibly high standards to inspire a comeback that remains unbelievable.
 
Trailing 3-0 to AC Milan at half-time, it was Gerrard's sublime header on 54 minutes that kickstarted a turnaround which ended with a sensational win on penalties.
 
Superstars like this former LFC No.8 come along once in a generation.
