Gerrard was better at both, just unfortunate he was in many bad teams.

Gerrard better than Souness?

As good as Gerrard was, he is not even in the same league.

This is like a United fan claiming Pogba is better than Keane.

Sourness best ever midfielder. Xabi second best CM. Gerrard the most complete midfielder in past 20 years.

Well yeah because Pogba has been as important to Utd as gerrard has for us.

Souness gets my vote as well. Just. Likening it to Pogba and Keane is absolutely absurd, though.

Look at what Souness won. He was the best midfielder in world football for nearly a decade.

Gerrard was never even the best in England and won just 1 major trophy with us. You can say he played in a worse team, but his dictating to the management where he wanted to play and who he wanted to play with was a big part of why he never got to play in a better side. He was the main culprit for a lot of poor performances as well.

Always turned up for the bug European nights, cup finals, or derby games so he is still a legend for some of the games he won us. Just don't think you can compare him to a player who helped us dominate Europe. Gerrard was very much a modern example of too much player power and celebrity life style (like Pogba, hence my loose comparison that everyone has taken too seriously. Sighs) . Souness was a true leader, undeniably world class, and a proper old school player who left everything on the pitch every game. A managers dream. Thankfully Gerrard looks to have matured and come back as a really level headed coach. Hopefully one day he can win the league with us from the dug out. He can't possibly be a worse manager than Souness!

Love Souness.

Kills me to see him still as I feel sad how the fans fell out with him.

there's a reason GERRARD was voted 2nd best lfc player after Kenny in our history.

Love souness but comparing him to GERRARD who carried lfc in his shoulders and WHATEVER lfc won in modern footy til this day we're talking abt has made HUGE HUGE CONTRIBUTION which is more then souness who played in Great lfc sides with some great players under one of the Greatest managers in our history.

Although Souness as an LFC player was before my time, born 84. My first memories of him were as manager which unfortunately didn't work out as we would have wanted but what a player, certainly the type we could do with now in the middle of the park. Although in the modern game his style would not suit unfortunately. Stevie as a midfielder had everything, football ability, intelligence and a a toughness similar to that of Souness. Obviously not as successful trophy wise as Souness but in my opinion a better all round footballer. I really would like to get the Eds opinion this?

If Souness was playing in the modern era he would have spent most of each season banned.

He certainly was a Liverpool great and one of the best of his generation but I have also no doubt that he was the dirtiest player that I remember wearing the red shirt.

I mean xxx bad.

I also didn't like that him lifting the European cup as our captain was his last appearance as a Liverpool player.

A good trait or a bad trait but Souness always put himself first before any club.

He still makes his money talking get about his time with the mighty reds but at the time he took the foreign payday breaking thousands of fans hearts.
For all the rumoured character problems of Stevie G. (I think bull) he always put LFC first and whose actions after lifting the Champions league trophy was to say I'm staying, how could I leave.
When he could have gone to any club in Europe.

Souness chalk, Gerrard the finest Lancashire cheese.

End of.

{Ed001's Note - Souness was a clever man, he would have been a totally different player if he was around now. He was good enough to adapt, being dirty was not what made him great.}

Gerrard was the more gifted all round footballer, but Souness was undisputably the better leader.

Gerrard wasn't the best midfielder in England? Did I just read that? He was the best in Europe for a few years and probably our second greatest ever player.
