      Steven Gerrard has donated £96,000 to the Hillsborough Family Support Group ahead of Tuesday's Merseyside derby.

      The group, along with the Hillsborough Justice Campaign, has been leading the fight to discover what happened at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final which led to 96 Liverpool fans losing their lives.

      The Liverpool captain's cousin Jon-Paul Gilhooley, 10, died at Hillsborough.

      Gerrard said it was something he had "wanted to do for a while" but "wanted to get the timing right".

      "It's to send a message of togetherness out as well," he added.

      "I know there's a bit of banter in the stands when the game's going on but, for me, the Everton fans have been superb since Hillsborough".
      'A special city'

      He added: "I think it's good timing to send this out now, just before the Merseyside derby, but also there's a huge thank you from not just myself but from all the Liverpudlians and all the help and support the Everton fans have given us with this.

      "When there is a tragedy in this city, you do get touching moments. It does unite and it does make you feel like you are part of such a special city".

      Ninety-six Liverpool fans died as a result of a crush at Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough ground during Liverpool's game against Nottingham Forest.

      Gerrard was a few weeks short of his ninth birthday when the tragedy, the worst sporting disaster in the country's history, occurred.

      Fresh inquests into the deaths will begin in Warrington in March after the original accidental death verdicts were quashed in 2012 following an independent report.

      The Hillsborough Family Support Group was founded in May 1989 and represents 74 of the families affected by the tragedy.

      Liverpool face Everton at Anfield at 20:00 BST on Tuesday.

      on top of his recent £500k to Alder Hey the lad is showing he has become a really decent fella.PLayers get some stick over money and rightly so but this lad is different I know he gives both his time and money to local charities.

      Good on the captain
      Good also to head (according to Ray Stubbs in his pre-match interview) that Gerrard didn't want the donation made public

      This story kind of slipped through the cracks for me, but a fantastic gesture by Stevie. Those families deserve every penny they get, and it's nice to they haven't been forgotten in the midst of football issues. (Not that Gerrard would have forgotten about them, but you know what I mean.)
