Gerrard was reacting to the claims in Harry Redknapp's new book.
"It's nonsense to say that. Nonsense," Gerrard told the Daily Mirror.
"The pain and the agony - how long that lasted after we didn't qualify for Euro 2008 - I wish you could bottle that and show it to people who say those things and doubt how much we care.
"We care. Trust me, we care. No one cares more than the players. We understand the fans and media are passionate, but that's certainly the case in the dressing room.
"It's a shame the supporters and certain people can't go into the dressing room and see how we prepare and how much we want this.
"The word I use when people bring it up is just nonsense."
