Liverpool hero in Man United horror show… Twitter rips him to shreds

Last ever game against Manchester United – well, probably – 45 minutes to help his side come back from 1-0 down to keep their top four case on course, captain’s armband on…. The stage was set for Steven Gerrard. However, after just 40 seconds he was on his way back down the tunnel in shame.

The midfielder was clearly pumped up as he clattered through Juan Mata, but his competitive edge was just too much seconds later as he stamped on Ander Herrera after taking a disliking to a challenge from the Spaniard.

Anfield could not quite believe what it saw, but, as ever, Twitter was bang on form, with fans across the globe taking the time to rip into the 34-year-old.

From abuse, to pictures, to memes, it was all on show… and here are some of the better ones!
