Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard insists he's not hurt by criticism from Sir Alex Ferguson in his new book.

The former Manchester United manager opines in the autobiography that "Gerrard was not a top, top player".

"Listen, he’s entitled to his opinion," Gerrard told the Daily Mail. "I’m a fan of his; he is one of the best managers in the world. I won’t lose any sleep over it. Throughout my career I have had praise from all types of people - including him - and I am not vain enough to take it all. I have had some unbelievable praise from him and he tried to buy me, certainly on one occasion. Maybe even two.

"For me, the most important thing is what Brendan Rodgers and Roy Hodgson are thinking. I think they are really pleased with me and that is all I will worry about."
