A teammate of Gerrard's for club and country, the 28-year-old has shared an Anfield dressing room with the No.8 for four years and feels that no-one deserves to be celebrated more than the Kop hero.
The full-back told LFC TV: "It's great to be involved - he's probably the best player that's ever played for Liverpool Football Club so to be a part of that is fantastic.
"No-one deserves it better than Stevie. He is Liverpool.
"He's always been there when the club have needed him, when the fans have needed him and when the players have needed him - he always turns up.
"He leads on the pitch. He's a great lad off the pitch but with the performances, when he needs to get in amongst it, he's the first to show up."
