Suarez, who left the Merseysiders to join Barcelona earlier this summer, certainly caused a few eyebrows to be raised when it emerged that he was back at the Melwood complex on transfer deadline day.

But he was there just to collect some belongings - as well as present a gift.

A picture has appeared on midfielder Gerrard's Instagram account of him and the Uruguay frontman smiling and holding up a signed 'Suarez 9' Barcelona shirt.

The image was accompanied by a message reading: "He is back bearing gifts.

"Emotional saying goodbye to the main man this morning. Best wishes to a phenomenal player."
