Gerrard makes 600th appearance for Liverpool against Newcastle

The Reds' captain racked up another milestone for his boyhood club when Liverpool kicked off against the Magpies at Anfield on Sunday.
Steven Gerrard notched his 600th appearance for Liverpool when the Reds kicked off against Newcastle at Anfield on Sunday.

The 32-year-old became the 10th player to reach such a milestone for the Anfield outfit, having made his debut for the club in a November, 1998 home victory over Blackburn.

Gerrard has won both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Cup during his time at the club, and he has tasted domestic success with two FA Cup wins and three League Cups, the most recent of which came last season.

Two of his most memorable performances came in cup finals for the club. Gerrard inspired the 2005 comeback win over AC Milan in the Champions League, while the midfielder scored a memorable long-range effort that ultimately led to FA Cup success over West Ham the following season.

Wayne Rooney was amongst those to congratulate the Liverpool skipper on the historic appearance, with the Manchester United striker tweeting: "Congrats to stevie g on 600 games. Great achievement whatever team u support."
