Daniel Agger will use Steven Gerrard as his inspiration after being made Liverpool’s vice-captain, Goal.com reports.

The Danish centre-back has taken over Jamie Carragher’s role at the club after the former England international retired at the end of last season.

Agger knows the responsibilities that are on his shoulders now that he is vice-captain and will follow the example that his captain, Steve Gerrard, has set during his time at the club.

“I always have responsibility, no matter if you’re vice-captain or not,” Agger told the club’s official website. “You have to always be there, always be at the front and, of course, try to help some of the young players”.

“Now I have been here for almost eight years and Stevie has been the captain all the way. He is an amazing captain: he is the one I will look at.

“Not only in his football skills, because that speaks for itself, but the person he is and the way he treats people – he’s just the best”.

Agger had been linked with a move away from Liverpool earlier this summer, with Barcelona reportedly interested in signing the centre back.

However, the Dane recently confirmed that he wants to remain at Anfield for the foreseeable future, a move that has relieved many of Liverpool’s supporters.
