Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has confirmed he will return to training with Jurgen Klopp's first team squad next week - but he will not make a return to action for the Anfield club.

BT Sport pundit Gerrard has been heavily linked with a return to play for Liverpool ahead of the new MLS season in America, but the LA Galaxy start has ruled out a quick comeback for the club he left in emotional circumstances last May.

He will be back at Liverpool's Melwood training HQ next week, with the blessing of Reds boss Klopp.
