The Reds skipper saw Manchester City pip the Merseysiders to last season’s Premier League title, before England crashed out of the World Cup at the group stage in Brazil in disappointing fashion.
I’ve probably been through the worst three months of my life
However, the 34-year-old – who announced his retirement from international football earlier this month – is determined to turn things around with his club next term.
“I’ve probably been through the worst three months of my life,” Gerrard said.
“There’s nothing else to say is there? But if you ask how it’s affected me – it hasn’t. I have football to play in the future so you have to look forward, not back.
“Every time I speak to the media it’s going to be mentioned and that’s the only time I think about it, really.
“I appreciate how big it is when you go out of a World Cup, when you fall short, after going so close in the Premier League title race.
“Everyone in this group of players looks to me to see what sort of mood I’m in, to see how I’m behaving round the place, so I have to shake it off pretty quick.”
