Daniel Sturridge has paid a touching tribute to Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard after the midfielder made his final Anfield appearance.

The Liverpool skipper was denied a winning end to his career on Merseyside after a 3-1 defeat by Crystal Palace on Saturday evening.

Jason Puncheon cancelled out Adam Lallana’s opener for the home side before Wilfried Zaha scored 22 seconds after coming off the bench before Glenn Murray netted a late penalty.

Sturridge, who is currently sidelined after undergoing a hip operation earlier this month, was quick to take to his Instagram page to hail Gerrard as the club’s greatest-ever player.

Sturridge wrote: “The greatest player to ever wear a Liverpool shirt. Wish I was there to share his last moments and season with the club.

“He’s taught me a lot about football on and off the field and made me feel welcome at the club on my first day when I was nervous and had no idea what to expect. As the saying goes you don’t know what you’ve got till its gone but for me we already know what we’ll miss.

“As I said before the greatest to wear the the Liverpool shirt and one of the greats of world football leaves our club today and I just want to say thanks for everything bro. All the best on the next chapter of your life and career. Studge @stevengerrard”

The Liverpool skipper has scored eight goals and has made one assist in 27 Premier League appearances this season.
