Jamie Carragher has been singing the praises of Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.
Former England international midfielder Gerrard was in superb form on Monday as he helped the Reds get the better of the AFC Wimbledon away from home.
The 34-year-old scored both goals as Liverpool won the FA Cup third-round tie at Kingsmeadow 2-1.
It was a brilliant performance from Gerrard, who scored the winner in the 62nd with one of his trademark free kicks.
Carragher, a former Liverpool teammate of Gerrard, was following the match and was impressed with his compatriot’s display.
The 36-year-old took to social networking site Twitter to once again criticise the Liverpool officials for deciding to let Gerrard leave at the end of the season.
Liverpool struggled for goals this season their top scorer is going to MLS next season!!!!!!— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) January 5, 2015
If Gerrard was one of the new signings at 24 we'd be raving about him, but we judge him at 34 against himself at his peak.— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) January 5, 2015
Liverpool owner John W. Henry’s wife, Linda Pizzuti Henry, also took to Twitter to hail Gerrard’s heroics and his contribution to the club over the years.
Gerrard is an incredible leader & inspiration on & off the field. I wish him & his family luck in their next chapter, they will be missed!— Linda Pizzuti Henry (@Linda_Pizzuti) January 5, 2015
Meanwhile, former Manchester United defender Danny Higginbotham had harsh words for Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and criticised the way he has handled Gerrard.
Gerrard a massive miss to Liverpool both on and off the pitch and in my opinion Liverpool have done no way near enough to try and keep him.— Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) January 5, 2015
Gerrard will be missed on the pitch but it's his influence in the dressing room that will be missed most. Who do the youngsters turn to— Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) January 5, 2015
Gerrards 600th Liverpool appearance. Its at home Rodgers puts him on bench and says he had no idea. There the little things that say a lot— Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) January 5, 2015
