The 34-year-old is set to make his 700th appearance for the club against West Ham on Saturday, and only Jamie Carragher and Ian Callaghan have played more times than the former England international. With the club captain leaving the Merseyside club in the summer it is unlikely that he will ever beat the pair’s totals, that stand at 737 and 857 respectively.
Rodgers has praised his midfielder, saying, “It’s an incredible achievement when you think of his story, and the journey he’s had here.
He added, “It will take some achievement by any player to do that again and I’m not sure they will. His life and journey here have been remarkable and you see how committed and focused on it he still is. And there are more appearances to come too.”
The Reds will be hoping that Gerrard has one last run of form left in him as they go towards the final stages of the season chasing a place in the top four of the Premier League, fighting for Europa League glory and still in the FA Cup hunt.
