Gerrard, who had an outstanding season himself, was honoured his efforts were rewarded, but can't believe Lampard was snubbed.
He said: "I was fully aware of the competition from Frank and surprised he seemed to be forgotten. He has had a great season and is such a consistent player. To get the nod above Frank and the others was a fantastic feeling.
"I felt the way he's been playing he would have been worthy of at least getting in the PFA team of the year. He is a fantastic player and he proves it by scoring 20 plus, year in year out. He is setting the standards for all the other players."
