Liverpool: Suarez Dominates LFC Awards

Liverpool: Suarez Dominates LFC Awards

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez picked up another three accolades at the club's end of season awards ceremony last night...

Uruguayan star Luis Suarez has lifted the Players' Player of the Year, Fans' Player of the Year and the Goal of the Season honour at Liverpool's official awards dinner on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old took his goals tally for the season to a record-equalling 31 with a strike in Monday night's dramatic 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace.

Suarez has already been crowned as the Football Writers' Player of the Year and Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year in recent weeks.

Speaking from the ceremony, held at the ACC Conference Centre in Liverpool, Reds captain Steven Gerrard described his Anfield colleague as 'the best player I have played with'.

"We are lucky to have such a world-class talent like Luis playing here with us and helping us to great things," commented the midfielder.

"He is out there by a big distance as the best player I have played with and that is no disrespect to anyone else - there has been some top talent for club and country - but this fella can do the lot. He is different to most footballers.

"I don't have to mention his talent, you can see it out there, and he is a fighter who doesn't give up."

Raheem Sterling, who has scored 10 goals in 37 appearances, claimed the Young Player of the Year crown, while manager Brendan Rodgers received an Outstanding Achievement Award for leading the side to a Champions League return.

The Merseysiders go into their final fixture of the season against Newcastle United on Sunday still in with a chance of being crowned Premier League champions.

Such an outcome is unlikely and will need Manchester City to drop a number of points but Rodgers is proud of his players and promised they will fight to the end.

"This season the players have allowed the supporters to dream," said the Northern Irishman. "For a club of this size and magnitude - to be a point ahead at the top of the table with a week to go you never know what can happen - it has been magnificent.

"I promise for the time I am here we will fight for our lives and we won't finish until Newcastle."

Elsewhere, starlet Jordan Rossiter scooped the Academy Players' Player of the Year accolade, while Nicole Rolser was awarded the Liverpool Ladies Players' Player of the Year prize.

Legendary figure Ronnie Moran was recognised for his contribution to the club across five separate decades with a well-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award.

Popular Brazilian Lucas Leiva was also honoured for his services to the Liverpool FC Foundation. The midfielder received the Bill Shankly Award which signifies someone who has upheld the club's values by showing dignity, unity, commitment and ambition.

Reflecting on the season as a whole, Gerrard added: "It has been an incredible season for us. There is no doubt to bring Champions League football back is an unbelievable achievement - it is so difficult to achieve.

"We've made huge strides as a team and we will continue to fight all the way to the end. We will have to wait and see how the final couple of games pan out but we'll keep our fingers crossed."

Every one of the award was very well deserved. Couldn't have picked any better myself.
