Gerrard impressed by Sterling

Published Add your comment

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has hailed the sensational impact of youngster Raheem Sterling, whom he believes can go "all the way to the top".

The 17-year-old became the Reds' second-youngest scorer in the Premier League after Michael Owen with the only goal - his first senior one for the club - in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Reading.

"I think he has been a great surprise to everyone; not that he is doing so well at this level but I don't think anyone expected him to break through so early," the 32-year-old said.
