Should have retired it when Joe Cole left the club.
Didn't Voronin wear it before Cole?

Funnily enough, whilst it's often seen as the most important number in football, I don't think it has as much history as other numbers when it comes to Liverpool.
As I said in another thread, I wouldn't be surprised to see Curtis or Harvey ask for it. But perhaps it's a bit too soon for them, so it could be a good idea to leave it vacant for a year.
