Steven Gerrard has dropped a big hint regarding his future and looks set to be leaving MLS side LA Galaxy.

Speculation continues to surround his future with the club and whether he will call time on his playing career in favour of a switch to coaching.

There have been links to Scottish champions Celtic where Gerrard may be in line for a move to play for his old Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers.

"Special place, incredible view, I will miss you LA," he wrote on Instagram. The photo featured is of the former England captain against the backdrop of the LA skyline.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has recently stated that Gerrard would always be welcome back at the club, partially due to the fact that he is an iconic figure to Reds fans.

Bruce Arena, LA Galaxy manager, said last week that he hoped that Gerrard would extend his stay with the club before his current deal expires at the end of the season.

"We were honoured to have Stevie here as well as Robbie [Keane, who announced his retirement from international football this year] and are hopeful they continue to be part of our club but only time will tell," he told AFP.

"I haven't spoken to those players. We need to let them have time to comment on what they want to do in their future rather than me commenting on it now."
