He told talkSPORT: "He moved to Manchester City because he wanted to win trophies and he's won six major trophies since signing for them.
"Now, how can Liverpool fans be calling him out? He went there as a young player, he gave everything for the red shirt when he was there, and he was sold for a record fee. Why is there hatred towards him?
"This has definitely added fuel to the fire; I don't think Raheem reacts in this way (towards Gomez) if the fans aren't singing that. It's a hatred that everyone could hear in the stadium and everyone could hear on the TV.
"I don't know how this is not getting dealt with because I don't feel one player should have that extreme abuse against him.
"We all know Raheem Sterling – he's a diamond of a player, he's an inspiration to millions and let's get it right, if England had a few more players like Raheem we'd be in a good place."
