And Goldson said: “He has already thanked me in there for keeping so many clean sheets! I just said to him ‘No problem…’ “No, seriously, he deserves it. He has saved us so many times and it’s a pleasure to have such a great goalkeeper behind us. “We have two great goalkeepers because you saw Jon McLaughlin during the week and I think that pushes Greegsy even more every single day. He trains like his life depends on it and he is a real inspiration for every single player here. “At his age, it would be so easy to take his foot off the gas and just wait for games of football.

“The way he works on a day to day basis, I see it. He is always the first person into the gym doing his programme, always one of the best trainers. I think he deserves it more than anyone because of the work he puts in.” Gerrard admitted any one of a number of his stars could have picked up the award but said: “I can’t argue against the decision and against Greegsy. “He has been magnificent for me and put in some world class performances. Some of the saves I have seen him make this season I haven’t seen before. Thoroughly deserved. “I am really pleased for him. From my point of view, it has been a brilliant week personally and to receive this award on the back of the one I received a few days ago is really humbling and flattering and I am pleased.

“But I am more pleased for my players and the next 24 hours are about stepping back and seeing them and being really proud of what they achieved because they have given me everything. “If you receive individual accolades along the way, I am really grateful and I will cherish them and they will go alongside the ones I achieved as a player. “For me, this is a team game and it is very much about what we can achieve as a group. The league trophy is the prize that I am really excited about.”
