The Reds skipper is enjoying Keane’s new book.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has perhaps picked an odd choice for his recommendation of best book – the second biography of former Manchester United skipper and rival Roy Keane.

Keane’s latest offering ‘The Second Half’ reveals incidents about the Irishman’s time with the Red Devils, Sir Alex Ferguson and the 2002 World Cup.

Despite the fact the current Aston Villa and Republic of Ireland assistant manager was once one of Gerrard’s greatest rival, he can clearly look past that when reading it.

“I’m a couple of chapters into Roy Keane’s new one, and I’m enjoying it, I’d recommend that,” the 34-year-old told GQ.

“I enjoyed his first book, and this is just as good.”

Gerrard has been enduring a somewhat difficult season with the Reds so far in 2014/15. with his own drop in form coinciding with that of the team’s as a whole.

This is in stark contract to last season when the skipper spearheaded a charge on the Premier League title as the Merseysiders achieved their best finish in the English top tier since 2009.

However, the loss of the PFA Player of the Year Luis Suarez has clearly affected Brendan Rodgers’ side badly and they have struggled in both the league and the Champions League.
