Steven Gerrard tapped up winger DURING a Liverpool game… and he agreed to sign

Gerrard revealed in his book ‘My Story’ that he was often asked by the club to help persuade players to come to Anfield.

The Reds did not decide to extend Pennant’s contract in 2009 meaning he was free to leave the club.

He decided on a move to Spain with Real Zaragoza, where he failed to score a goal in 25 appearances.

The 35-year-old has now retired after further spells with Stoke City, Wolves, Pune City, Wigan Athletic, Tampines Rovers, Bury and Billericay.
