GAY men have voted Liverpool beefcake Steven Gerrard the “hottest player” in the Premier League.
The Liverpool and England midfielder topped the table in a poll of 4,200 users of gay dating website Gaydar.co.uk.
The survey, which asked men to rank players in categories such as “best legs” and “worst haircuts”, found Chelsea dreamboat Fernando Torres in second place and another Chelsea hunk, Frank Lampard, in third.
Spurs frontman Peter Crouch polled last in the survey – aiming to tackle homophobia in the sport.
Simon Johnson, product manager for Gaydar.co.uk, said: “It is shocking is that so many gay men aren’t going to football matches because they’re worried about their safety due to homophobia within the sport.”
