Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says Steven Gerrard has plenty of years ahead of him.

Gerrard will make his 600th appearance for his boyhood club against Newcastle United today.

"I would imagine he'll play more games. He's been a better player than me for Liverpool so he thoroughly deserves that," Carragher, whose career at Anfield is drawing to an end having been relegated to Capital One Cup and Europa League matches this season, told liverpoolfc.com.

"When Stevie gets to my position - and I don't know if he'll want to be in the position I've been in for the last six to 12 months because I've been on the bench a lot - he will still always come on.

"If you look at the Swansea game he's still getting brought off the bench to rescue it for us - that's been the way for 13 or 14 years now.

"When that changes, maybe he'll look at it, but he's still expected to produce the Superman act at 32, so I think we're still a while away from that changing."
