The LA Galaxy’s MLS play-off defeat last week has left the future of former England and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard uncertain, but it’s not expected the midfielder will be staying on at the Galaxy.
They lost 1-0 to the Colorado Rapids and since then Steven has posted an Instagram shot of himself with the LA lights in the background and the caption was
“Special place, incredible view, I will miss you LA.”
That kind of suggests he’s not going to be staying around.

Steven is now 36 years old and has been in the US for the last 18 months and now the speculation over his future and who he may play for – if anybody – is rife.
And just like a few years back when David Beckham’s future was uncertain, there was also talk about the former LA Galaxy star possibly joining Newcastle – although it seemed a pipe dream.
The Galaxy would like Gerrard to stay on in LA for another season, but it seems that’s unlikely to happen and that may even be it for the player – who could be retiring.
SkyBet have put Celtic and Newcastle in the lead in the betting – probably because former Liverpool managers Rafa Benitez is at Newcastle and Brendan Rodgers is at Celtic.
Newcastle were 22/1 yesterday but the odds have shortened considerably to 5/1 – so maybe Rafa wants him at Newcastle?
On SkyBet here’s the latest betting on who will sign him before next September.
Any Chinese club 16/1
It seems the betting is that Steven will join a manager he has worked with before – and he has always said that Rafa Benitez is the best manager he ever played for.
Gerrard made 38 appearances for Galaxy with five goals and 15 assists.
