Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard says Dirk Kuyt is now one of the most influential players at the club.

Gerrard is happy to declare Kuyt as an ideal role-model for any young Reds player.

He said: "He's very good. He pops up with important goals, he's got the never-say-die attitude and never gives up from start to finish. He's in a very good vein form at the moment, scoring important goals. He's the Duracell bunny, isn't he?

"He just keeps going and going, never gives up, has a fantastic attitude, works hard every day in training and if you're a young kid and you look at Dirk, he's the type of role model you want - somebody who gives everything they've got."
