The Anfield skipper, who has picked up three monthly awards this season, can now add the title of PFA Fans' Player of the Year 2009 to his ever-growing list of honours.

England midfielder Steven was the first ever winner of the annual fans' player award back in 2001 and this latest tribute shows that his popularity is as great as ever.

PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor: "Steven has always been a particular favourite of mine and I was delighted when he was nominated by his fellow pros for our Players' Player of the Year award.

"Obviously, that particular award went to Ryan Giggs, and rightly so, and I am equally thrilled that football fans up and down the country, givemefootball readers, have acknowledged Steven in this way.

"Like his many supporters and suitors, I have the utmost respect and admiration for the way he continues to go about his business. He is a top pro and a worthy winner."
