Steven Gerrard admits Liverpool are lucky to have “world-class” Luis Suarez after the Uruguayan scooped three of the club’s end-of-season awards.

The 27-year-old was voted Liverpool players’ player of the year, fans’ player of the year and the scorer of the club’s goal of the season on Tuesday night.

He’s won everything and we are lucky to have such a world-class talent like Luis playing here with us and helping us to great things and be successful

Suarez, who moved to Liverpool from Ajax in a £22.75m deal in January 2011, has scored 31 goals in 32 Premier League appearances this season.

And Gerrard heaped praise on the newly-crowned PFA player of the year and predicted some “really big nights” if Suarez stays at the Merseyside outfit.

“Luis seems to be cleaning up at the moment,” Gerrard told Liverpool’s website.

“He’s won everything and we are lucky to have such a world-class talent like Luis playing here with us and helping us to great things and be successful.

“He is out there by a big distance as the best player I have played with and that is no disrespect to anyone else – there has been some top talent for club and country – but this fella can do the lot. He is different to most footballers.

“I don’t have to mention his talent, you can see it out there, and he is a fighter who doesn’t give up.

“There is some disappointment looming around but if this fella stays around for a few more years I think there will be some really big nights.”
