FOOTBALL: Steven Gerrard: Ex-Liverpool captain to leave LA Galaxy
Ex-Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard says he has "options on and off the pitch" after announcing he will leave MLS club LA Galaxy.
Gerrard, 36, joined in Galaxy in 2015 and scored five goals in 34 appearances during two seasons in America. His contract expires next month.
"It's certainly not the end of me in football terms," said Gerrard, who has been linked with Newcastle and Celtic.
"I'm going home to spend time with family and decide the best challenge."
"I've got options on the pitch, off the pitch and I've got a bit of thinking to do over the next two, three weeks."
Galaxy were beaten on penalties by Colorado Rapids in the MLS Cup play-offs on 6 November and Gerrard admitted he was disappointed at not fulfilling his "objective" of helping Bruce Arena's side win the trophy.
But he said he was "proud" of his accomplishments in the US, adding his time there was an "incredible experience".
