Liverpool Football Club will honour Steven Gerrard with a testimonial today with the proceeds being donated to charity.

The Reds will face reigning Greek Champions and European giants Olympiacos in their only pre-season match to be played at Anfield this afternoon (2pm KO).

The contest is being staged to celebrate Gerrard's glittering Liverpool career and to recognise his commitment and loyalty to his hometown club.

Money raised from events celebrating Steven's testimonial year will be for the benefit of The Steven Gerrard Foundation (SGF), a registered charity.

The foundation, set up in February 2011, is committed to making a lasting difference to disadvantaged children and young people in need.

Liverpool's opponents, Olympiacos, have confirmed that they too will be donating their appearance fee to local charities in Greece.
