Steven Gerrard Pays Tribute to Peter Crouch After Retirement

Steven Gerrard has paid tribute to Peter Crouch following the announcement of his retirement.

The Rangers manager played with Crouch for three years while together at Anfield and also appeared for England at the same time.

And it looks like Crouch made an impact on Gerrard going by his Instagram post following the tall striker’s announcement.

The former Liverpool, Portsmouth, Stoke and Burnley – and countless other teams – striker confirmed his retirement via Twitter this morning:

Crouch retires at 38 after 205 goals in 735 appearances in club football – and also has 22 goals in 42 international games to his name too.

Gerrard took to Instagram following Crouch’s announcement to pay his own tribute:

In their time together at Liverpool, Crouch and Gerrard won the FA Cup and finished runners up in 2007 Champions League final.

Crouch is the star of the popular That Peter Crouch Podcast on BBC Sounds and will likely concentrate on his media career following his football career.
