Today marks 15 years to the day a young Gerrard made his first appearance for the club as a 90th minute substitute against Blackburn.
"It's a great credit to Steven that he has remained at the highest level for so long and he's still such an important player for us.
"The fact that he's still so fit and runs as many miles as he does during games shows you how well he has looked after himself.
"It's not only what he does on the pitch but the way he is off it as well. He's a gentleman. He has achieved so much in his career and I wish him many more years at Liverpool.
"Look at the quality he produced against Everton - he's been doing that for 15 years and I'm sure he will continue in that way for years to come."
