This has reminded Reds fans that the Anfield icon will need to be replaced this summer, and as good as James Milner is, he isn’t in the same bracket as the 35-year-old.
Here are six players that Brendan Rodgers could sign in order to do this…
6) Mateo Kovacic, Inter Milan
Kovacic featured as a deep-lying playmaker last season, much like Gerrard did, but has also been known to play further forward.
The 21-year-old is very similar to the former England international, with great passing ability and able to contribute defensively.

Rodgers will have to fight off Bayern Munich if he wants the youngster though, according to Eurosport.
