Dalglish: Gerrard fantastic Liverpool statesman

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish has made a glowing tribute to skipper Steven Gerrard.

Gerrard has now passed Dalglish on the club's all-time goalscoring list.

Dalglish told liverpoolfc.com: "He has been fantastic for the football club and he's a great example for everybody.

"He's a fantastic statesman; he has been unbelievably successful at this football club with what he's done, the amount of games he has pulled out of the mire, and the general way he conducts himself.

"He's really matured over the years; carrying the captaincy for Liverpool Football Club is quite an onerous job and I think he does it remarkably well.

"It's admirable the way he conducts himself and his interviews. What he does on the pitch is a shining example to everybody else round about him."
