The Liverpool skipper has been asked to play a deeper role alongside Lucas Leiva since Brendan Rodgers replaced Kenny Dalglish at the Anfield helm in May 2012.
Sturridge and Suárez have scored a combined 33 goals since the England striker’s move to the Reds, and Liverpool legend Aldridge would like to see Gerrard in a more advanced role.
“There was yet another stunning milestone reached by Steven Gerrard on Saturday,” Aldridge wrote in his Liverpool Echo column.
“This time the Liverpool skipper became the first footballer in Liverpool’s history to score in 15 consecutive league seasons.
“It’s another memorable achievement, but I hope he goes on to reach another 10 goal-scoring milestones.
“And he would have more chance of doing so if he was utilised a little higher up the pitch.
“We need Steven to score more goals, and the way we’re playing at the moment is stopping him from getting in and around the opposition penalty area as
“I’d love to see him given a bit more leeway to link up with Luis Suárez and Daniel Sturridge .
“Imagine those two football brains with Stevie’s imagination and talent behind them.
“With a triangle like that at the top end of the pitch you really would be talking.”
