Former Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has played down talk that Steven Gerrard could be replaced by Jordan Henderson next season.
Writing in his column for the Daily Mirror, the Scot expressed his joy at seeing Henderson doing well in the team this season, though he insists Gerrard is irreplaceable.
“It is unfair to use the word ‘replace’ when you talk about Jordan, Steven Gerrard and the Liverpool captaincy,” Dalglish writes.
“He doesn’t replace Steven. Nobody will – you can forget ANYBODY coming in as a one-off replacement. He just takes over as captain when Steven leaves in the summer.”
