Liverpool legend Gerrard: I retired too soon

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard admits he regrets hanging up his boots.

The new Rangers boss retired after a year in MLS with LA Galaxy.

"Looking back at my playing career now, I feel as if I should have maybe played on for one more year," he said.

“Not for the lifestyle in America, for the actual buzz of playing football.

“I went there because I knew my Liverpool days were coming to an end and I knew emotionally I would have found that tough, because I used to love every single day going in and representing that club.

“So, I'd have played on for football reasons, but my wife got pregnant while I was out there in the MLS and it just made sense to come back home."
