Stephen Warnock was a solid and reliable performer at left back who never let anyone down when called upon for first team duty.

He came through the Academy and bounced back from two broken legs to achieve his dream of breaking into the Liverpool first team.

Despite earning rave reports in the reserve team, Warnock was never given a fair chance under Gerard Houllier and had two season long loan spells with Bradford City and Coventry City. Indeed during his spell at Coventry he was named the supporters Player of the Season.

It was the summer of 2004 when Warnock, who was pondering his Liverpool future, had a new lease of life at Anfield under Rafael Benitez. The player was included for the pre-season tour of the USA and Canada and played in all three of the matches.

Warnock then made his Liverpool debut as an 80th minute substitute for Steven Gerrard during the Champions League qualifier in Graz. He then started in Olympiacos but his most memorable game was away in Bayer Leverkusen on the road to Istanbul. He had a storming game which was epitomised in stoppage time when he made a superb tackle in stoppage time to stop the Germans scoring.

Despite being a regular in the squad for the majority of the 2004/2005 season he then suffered major disappointment when he wasn't included in the party for the Champions League final against AC Milan.

In the following season 2005/2006 Warnock was an unused substitute in the Super Cup final when Liverpool beat CSKA Moscow 3-1 in Monaco, but was again left out of the squad for the 2006 FA Cup final in Cardiff.

Unfortunately a series of niggling injuries restricted Warnock's progress at Anfield and he left to join Blackburn Rovers in January 2007.
