Liverpool legend Ian Rush has hinted that fellow legend Steven Gerrard could take part in the Reds’ post-season friendly match in Sydney at the end of next month.
Gerrard, – who recently scored a fantastic goal in a Liverpool legends match against Real Madrid – is said to still be in top condition, and Rush sees no reason why he shouldn’t feature in the team’s upcoming friendly.
“Everyone that’s available and fit will be coming out,” the former striker said to the Australian Associated Press (H/T ESPN FC).
“I was lucky enough to play with Steven in the Legends game a few weeks ago.
“He works at the academy, he keeps himself fit.
“At the end of the day this is a first-team squad game, it’s not a Legends game, so you’ve got to take it serious.

“But in saying that, if he is going to take it serious there’s no one better than Steven Gerrard because he keeps himself fit.”
Liverpool’s first-team stars are all expected to make the trip, so Australian fans could look forward to seeing the likes of Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino perform. However, it’s unlikely that Sadio Mane will be fit in time.
