"I think it’s a nice gesture and also with the connection I’ve got to Hillsborough, with my own family, it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I think the timing’s right and having spoken to the club I’ve decided to do it now," Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo.

The donation coincides with tonight's Merseyside derby and the 33-year-old said it was a gesture which acknowledged Everton's continued support for the campaign.

Answering a question from ITV News Sports Editor Steve Scott, the midfielder said: "I'm not interested in what Rio Ferdinand has to say about this group of players.

"When you play for England there's always a lot of opinions outside the group, especially in a World Cup year...but when we're inside (the group) we don't take much notice of what is said outside."

He added that he disagreed with Ferdinand's comments and felt the current England squad did have an identity.
