Liverpool legend and Rangers boss, Steven Gerrard, has picked his Premier League Player of the Year.

It is that time of year when pundits and managers talk about the stars who have influenced Europe’s most popular league.

And Henderson, who has excelled in central midfield for nearly champions Liverpool, is Gerrard’s pick.

“If he got it I don’t think anyone could argue or grumble,” Gerrard told The Athletic.

“He would deserve it as much as anyone else who is in the running for it.

“I try to be non-biased when I talk about things like this. Kevin De Bruyne has been superb this season.

“The same goes for Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan and Sadio Mane. Any of them would deserve it. Would I like to see Jordan win it? Yes, I would.

“I’d also like to see him win the Football Writers’ award. In this day and age, with what we’re going through and what we’ve seen of late, he’s someone who commits himself to the game and is a real ambassador and role model on and off the pitch.

“It’s the way he goes about his work, the quality he has shown consistently and his leadership skills.

“With these individual awards, I just think sometimes they have to be about more than what just happens on the pitch. I think Jordan is certainly deserving to be in the running for both. If he got both I’d be very pleased for him.”
