Sad, sad news. He may not have had great technical ability like some of the great Liverpool defenders of the past, but he more than made up for it with his 200% effort and commitment, EVERY.SINGLE.TIME he played for the club.
His last few years may not have been his best and his inclusion in the team frustrated us as fans, but age affects every player and we'll definitely miss him when he's gone. Hopefully he gets a job at the club as a coach.
Will go down as one of the Liverpool greats.
