England captain Steven Gerrard made his 600th appearance for the Reds, against Newcastle
England captain Steven Gerrard played his 600th game for Liverpool during their 1-1 draw against Newcastle United at Anfield.
The milestone moves Gerrard up to tenth in the club's list of all-time appearance makers, having made his debut in November 1998.
He was presented with a special Liverbird trophy by Gary McAllister before kick-off and Gerrard told Liverpool's website: "When I was a young boy, I never dreamed I was going to make that many games.
"It was all about pulling that red shirt on and making one appearance for the club and then the dream was made.
"So to clock up 600 games is a magnificent achievement for me and my family and everyone is really proud."
On the field, Gerrard was influential as usual - even trying a cheeky free-kick at goal all the way from his own half - but he could not quite guide his team to victory.
Newcastle, who included England Under-21 internationals Steven Taylor and substitute Sammy Ameobi, went ahead through Yohan Cabaye but were pegged back in the end by Luis Suarez.
England youngster Raheem Sterling was again impressive for Liverpool while substitute Jonjo Shelvey had a chance to win the game but couldn't quite turn home a cross from Suarez. Stewart Downing also came on for the Reds as they tried to find a winner.
Elsewhere, QPR, featuring Anton Ferdinand and substitute Bobby Zamora, drew 1-1 with Reading at Loftus Road; meaning they are still searching for their first Premier League win of the season.
