Liverpool ace Gerrard touched by FWA honour

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has been honoured by the Football Writers' Association at a gala tribute dinner in London.

Gerrard, 32, was voted FWA Footballer of the Year in 2009 and was touched to have been recognised for his achievements once again.

"Tonight's award means a lot because these guys have followed me throughout my career, written about me whenever I have played," he said. "To receive this award from the Football Writers' Association is a very proud night for myself and my family. I feel very flattered and humbled to receive it.

"I have always looked at personal awards a bit of a bonus really. I always try to achieve things with Liverpool or fight to do well for England.

"But when you talk about awards of people like the supporters or people in the press who watch you week in and week out, scrutinise your performances, these mean an awful lot because these guys know their football."
