Gerrard says Shaw will be England's first-choice left-back for the next ten years.
"I watched him play a couple of times for the Under-21s and he looked like a man joining in with a boys' game," he told the Mail on Sunday.
"He is a left-back with power, speed and he can defend, too. He is going to be Manchester United and England's left-back for the next 10 years."
