Photo: First glimpse of Steven Gerrard in LA Galaxy shirt appears on billboard

LA Galaxy appear to be displaying billboards of the former Liverpool favourite in LA wearing his new club's kit.

A photograph has emerged on Twitter seemingly showing Steven Gerrard in an LA Galaxy kit, just over a month after he last appeared in the famous red of Liverpool.

The picture appears to be on a billboard advertisement of Gerrard's impending arrival, and is displayed alongside the word 'greatness'.

It will look somewhat strange to those that continue to idolise him at Liverpool, and is further evidence that supporters are going to have to get used to seeing Gerrard in a hugely unfamiliar strip next season.

The ex England favourite won't be the only former Liverpool man turning out in LA, as he'll be linking up with Robbie Keane, himself a Tottenham favourite, who took in a six month spell at the club in 2008.

But while Spurs fans wouldn't have had any issue seeing Keane line up for Galaxy in 2011, Reds fans are likely to be in shock well into the next campaign.

Gerrard is a hero in Merseyside after spending 17 years at Liverpool where he captained the side to all manner of trophies, and until he decided to leave Anfield, he was a one club man.

The 35-year-old played 708 games for the Reds, scoring 186 goals during his time at Anfield.
