He told liverpoolfc.tv: "I am about to pay Luis Suarez a major compliment - but after Sunday's performance he deserves it.
"The way the South American plays the game reminds me of the first time I saw Kevin Keegan in a Red shirt during the 1970s.
"Suarez is a breath of fresh air and he is just so infectious as he proved magnificently against Manchester United.
"He reminds me of Keegan with his balance and pace but also has elements of Kenny Dalglish in the way he backs into defenders using his backside.
"To think a player can show elements of those two legends of our club is incredibly exciting."
