Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has received a glowing tribute from a current Premier League captain in an age-old debate.

Now managing Rangers in the Scottish Premier League, Gerrard's name often still crops up during discussions over who the Premier League's finest midfielder has been.

Some fans may have been expecting Noble to plump for Lampard given his West Ham connections but the 32-year-old, who earlier this season became the fourth highest scorer of penalties in the Premier League era behind Alan Shearer, Lampard and Gerrard, would not be swayed.

Noble actually went even further as well, as in response to a question from the official Premier League Twitter account as to who were the best players he played alongside and against, the Hammers skipper replied simply for the latter: "Gerrard".

Asked who he thought was the best out of Scholes, Gerrard or Lampard, Noble replied: "Trust me when I say you only realise how good a player is when you play against them.

Manchester United's Paul Scholes and Chelsea's Frank Lampard are the two names who most often are thrown into the mix but the former Liverpool skipper has received the nod from a slightly-surprising source.

The Huyton-born midfielder's playing career at Anfield ended in 2015 when he left for LA Galaxy, having scored 186 goals in 710 games for the Reds after progressing through the club's Academy and skippering the side to a number of honours including most memorably the Champions League in 2005.
