Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has revealed his regret about not playing more with Steven Gerrard.
The Sky Sports pundit was unfortunate to suffer injuries during the later stages of his career at Anfield, although the problems led to Gerrard earning his first chances in the senior side with Liverpool.
After spending over a decade with the Reds, Redknapp spent time with Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton before retiring. However, the former England international enjoyed meeting some of the old pros at The Steven Gerrard Foundation Trophy, a charity golfing event in Spain.
"It was good to be with some of the old players. It makes you want to be back playing. There are times when I wish I could still play with Steven," Redknapp told the official Liverpool website.
"I wish I could have played with him more. Looking at the way he plays, it would have been a joy. He's one of those players who you give it to and they get on with it. He will go down as one of the greats - there are no two ways about it."
Reflecting on Gerrard the man, Redknapp continued: "He's one of those guys who you meet along the way in football who's a top man and a top player. When you're in a privileged position it's nice to give something back - but a lot don't.
"For him to take that opportunity - he deserves a lot of respect for that. He's just a thoroughly good fella, it's as simple as that. He enjoys the fact he's doing something like this and he's had a great turnout."
