The defender will miss the daily trip to the club's Melwood training ground but he does not expect to be returning on a regular basis as he eases himself into retirement.
"Once you're done, you're done," he admitted.
"I'm sure I'll be welcome to come in for my lunch one day and watch training but I don't think it's something I'll be doing.
"People automatically think of (missing) Anfield, I think of this place (Melwood).
"This is where you come every day, this is where I've been coming since I was nine years of age.
"Anfield is sort of the icing on the cake. It's special but this is where you come every day.
"It's probably coming here and the characters and people you meet every day. You'll have to fill that void in your life."
