Stephen Warnock (born 12 December 1981) is an English footballer who played for Liverpool from 2002-2007 having grauduated through the youth ranks. He left Liverpool in 2007, joining Blackburn for £1,500,000.
Warnock, having been a part of the Liverpool academy since 1994, was promoted to Melwood in 2002. To further his progression as a player, Warnock was sent on loan to Bradford in 2002 and Coventry for the 2003-04 season. The 2004-05 season proved to be Warnock's breakthrough season, when he made his first appearance, coming on as a 77th minute substitute for Steven Gerrard against Grazer AK on 10 August 2004 in a Champions League qualifying first leg. This was followed up by his first league appearance - again as a substiute - against Tottenham on 14 August 2004. He scored his first and only goal against Fulham on 15 March 2006 in a 5-1 victory.
Due to Rafael Benitez's rotation policy he could never cement his place as first choice left back, which he found confusing saying "Even if you’d played really well one week, you never thought you would play the next. People were being rested in September and October and I just think that’s crazy. You don’t want to be rested at that stage of the season. I thought I needed to play week in, week out to improve myself as a player." However he still managed to make 30 appearances in both the 2004-05 and 2005-06 seasons. Warnock signed for Blackburn on 22 January 2007 for around £1,500,000.
