STEVEN Gerrard has come under fire for flaunting his millions by buying an 18-carat rose gold iPad for daughter Lourdes’ sixth birthday.
The former Liverpool and England ace posted a picture of the £1,455 device on his Instagram account and plugged the company who sold it.
Dad-of-four Gerrard, 37, who coaches Liverpool’s under 18 team, also uploaded a picture of Lourdes for his 6.5million followers, captioned: “Happy 6th birthday to this little stunner I love you babe.”
But fans of the married star accused him for forgetting his working-class roots. Amanda Dodd wrote “Flaunting wealth is obscene, expected better from Steve G.”
Julie Phelan said: “A gold ipad for a 6 year old. Really? Not sure that endorsement needed to be publicised. Couldn’t you just pay full price and keep it private.”
Another wrote: “Thanks @stevengerrard for making my daughter think this is normal and she should have it.”
Theonlymod said: “Talk about gloating man . . . most of the Liverpudlians are in poverty!” Another stated: “Ohhh noooo stay humble lad!” Jon Hamm added: “Food banks exist. Just incase you didn’t know.”
Last week, The Sun revealed Wayne Rooney’s son Kai had joined Instagram aged eight, despite under-13s being banned from the website.
