The Liverpool midfielder says the sight of his captain lifting the Premier League is just reward for his hard work and dedication over the years

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has paid an emotional tribute to team-mate Jordan Henderson, saying no-one deserves success more than the Reds skipper.

Lallana has developed a close friendship with the 30-year-old, having played alongside him for the entirety of his Reds career since joining from Southampton in 2014, with Henderson arriving from Sunderland three years previously.

Henderson struggled for fitness and consistency in his early seasons at Anfield, with rumours the club were considering moving him on.

However, he has thrived since succeeding Steven Gerrard as captain in 2015, playing a central role in the club’s success under Jurgen Klopp in recent years.

In the last 12 months alone the England international has lifted the Champions League, Super Cup, World Club Cup and now the Premier League. He also received individual recognition when he was named Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year.
