Former Liverpool forward El Hadji Diouf has made some ridiculous claims about the club skipper.
"All I was worried about was the Senegal team, I took them to the World Cup quarter-finals in 2002.
"I was in Pele's 100 players of the century. Not him.
"I respect him as a footballer, but there is nobody more egotistical than him.
"Gerrard was jealous of me back then as I had the world at my feet. There's no one more selfish. He doesn't care about anyone else. I respect him as a footballer, but there is nobody more egotistical than him.
"He does not care about others. I spoke to the major figures at Liverpool and nobody can stand him. And I am not talking about Carragher."
