Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says Jamie Carragher is the ideal role-model for any young player at the club.

Gerrard believes the way Carragher has conducted himself over the course of his career so far is the perfect example for any up-and-coming footballer.

"Carra is unbelievable, and I am one of his biggest fans," he told "I have seen his attitude for more than a decade and I don't believe he gets enough credit for it.

"What some people don't appreciate with Carra is he puts his body on the line. Week in week out, he will push through the pain barrier for himself and the club.

"He's breaking records right at the highest level of the game because of his attitude. He's an absolute credit to himself."
