Liverpool legend McDermott: Gerrard better than Souness

Liverpool legend Terry McDermott rates Steven Gerrard ahead of his former teammate Graeme Souness. McDermott played alongside Souness at the heart of the midfield during his later days at Anfield, but he believes Gerrard is even better than the former treble-winning skipper.

"I've gone on record as saying Steven Gerrard is the best midfield player Liverpool have ever had," McDermott told Liverpoolfc.com.

"I know my mate Graeme Souness would probably give me a rollicking for not saying him, and he was a fantastic player for this club, but Steven has everything.

"Gerrard is in the same sentence for me as Kenny Dalglish and Kevin Keegan. He is Mr Liverpool and I love watching him play.

"He is wholehearted, he gives everything for the red shirt every game and he can do everything. In fact I can't think of anything he can't do and I wouldn't be surprised if he's very good in goal as well."
