Cristiano Ronaldo is the latest soccer luminary to offer a parting tribute to Steven Gerrard, in a move that might surprise a few Manchester United supporters.

Even though Ronaldo played against Gerrard on numerous occasions during his time at Manchester United, it is something of a mystery why he is offered this message to a player who has never been on his own team.

Yet after the euphoria surrounding Gerrard's final game for Liverpool at Anfield last weekend, Ronaldo felt the need to join in with the tributes for the player who will join LA Galaxy on July 1st.

One man who might be a little bemused by these ongoing Gerrard eulogies may be Frank Lampard, who will also play his final Premier League game this weekend after a career that has seen him win more trophies, score more goals and play more matches than his former England midfield partner.
