David Meyler has congratulated Jordan Henderson on being named Liverpool vice-captain.

The England international was named as the Reds’s second-in-command on Monday after his predecessor Daniel Agger sealed a return to Brondby in the summer transfer window.

Liverpool centre-half Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren had been touted as possible contenders, but Brendan Rodgers plucked for fans’s favourite 24-year-old Henderson.

And Republic of Ireland international Meyler is thrilled to see his former Sunderland team-mate Henderson receive the prestigious honour.

Earlier, Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard took to Instagram to issue his support for Henderson’s appointment as his number two.

34-year-old Gerrard wrote: “Our new vice captain. He has worked his socks off for this honour. Well done mate.”

Henderson could make his first appearance as Liverpool vice-captain when the Reds face Ludogorets Razgrad at Anfield on Tuesday night.
