Steven Gerrard is awarded an honorary fellowship in a graduation ceremony at a Liverpool university.

The 28-year-old, who was awarded the MBE in 2007, was given the honour by Liverpool John Moores University.

It was given to mark the Anfield club captain's contribution to sport.

Gerrard, who said he was proud to receive the honour, had his fellowship conferred during a graduation ceremony at the city's Anglican Cathedral.

Speaking earlier, Liverpool John Moores University's (LJMU) Vice-Chancellor Professor Michael Brown said they were "delighted" to welcome Gerrard to the university family.

"Steven epitomises the university philosophy of dream, plan, achieve," he said.

"As a young boy he excelled in the sport he loves and ensured his talent was recognised, looking upon challenges as opportunities and pursuing each available avenue.

Insult to the education system IMHO, most people have to study for at least 7 years for such an accolade kicking the equivalent of a pig's bladder around for 15 years making yourself fit and earning 5 times more in a week than the average person does in a year, does not constitute an education. Shame on these so called universities seeking creditability in this way.
