Steven Gerrard has admitted not being able to win a Premier League title during his 17 seasons at Liverpool is one of the biggest regrets of his career.

The former England captain will leave Anfield for pastures new this summer, having agreed an 18-month deal with MLS giants LA Galaxy earlier this year.

Having made over 700 appearances for the Reds, Gerrard has led his home town club to FA Cup, League Cup, Europa League and Champions League success in a superb career on Merseyside.

However the 34-year-old midfielder has been forced to watch on as the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea have all lifted the Premier League trophy more than once on his watch.

Gerrard has admitted that the lack of an English crown is a regret but insists he would not change the way his stellar career in the game has panned out.

He told the BBC: “It is not the only regret, I think it is the biggest. I would love to say that I have got the full collection, it would be the icing on the cake.

“Nobody’s journey ever goes smoothly, mine certainly hasn’t, but I am certainly proud of it and I wouldn’t change it for anything.”

Gerrard will take the field at Anfield for the last time in a Liverpool jersey on Saturday, when the Reds host Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Liverpool are 1.44 to win, 4.20 to draw and 7.00 to lose to the Eagles this weekend.
