It is Gerrard's part in healing the rift between Arsenal target Suarez and manager Brendan Rodgers, that could have the biggest impact on the Reds' season.
With Liverpool insisting Suarez will not be sold, either to the Gunners or any other club this summer, the wantaway striker has had no choice but to swallow his pride and apologise.
Suarez, however, was unsure about the way in which he would be received by Rodgers and, it is understood, Gerrard accompanied the Uruguay international when he went to see the boss.
Gerrard's intervention is thought to be a signal that Suarez has been accepted back into the fold by this team-mates.
