The comedian couldn’t resist getting a selfie with the “legend” player as he caught up with him and mutual pals in the city.
Posting the snap on Instagram, John wrote: “A legend out having a drink in Liverpool and a lad who plays a bit of football great to see @stevengerrard.”
They were surrounded by pals and didn’t let their defeat to Crystal Palace get them down as they celebrated his career together.
On another group snap, John wrote: “Good afternoon with the lads @Rach_and_Dollar in Liverpool.”
The Liverpool FC legend played his last home game yesterday before his switch to LA Galaxy in the summer.
He was filmed as he bid an emotional farewell to his fans and teammates, before the star led a lap of honour around the ground – with the rest of the squad wearing his name and number on their backs.
He was awarded a Golden Samba in front of the Kop along with Philippe Coutinho.
