Last week at Newcastle (in the 6-0 victory) how he marshalled the defence and how he played - everything about his game is at the top level," said the Reds boss.
I can't think of enough words to describe him. His performance level has been incredible.
It (retirement) is such a shame because he probably could play on but he has already made his mind up.
His dream was to go out at the top and he is fulfilling that dream because he is a top operator at this level.
But his concentration will be on the games and no further than Everton.

Brendan Rodgers could start his summer transfer dealings with the capture of free transfer Alex Pearce from Reading, say Metro. The English-born centre-back has turned down a new deal in Berkshire, and would boost numbers at Anfield with Jamie Carragher set to retire at the end of the season.
