Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has insisted Lionel Messi is on another planet compared to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Gerrard was part of a BT Sports debate on who the better player between the two superstars is.

The former Reds skipper admitted Ronaldo came close to Messi last year, but since the start of 2015, it’s not even a debate.

"For me, the best player in the world at the moment is Lionel Messi," he said.

"I think maybe last year, on form, it might have been Ronaldo, but certainly this year, from January up until now, Lionel Messi has been in a league of his own, phenomenal to watch.

"He's an incredible talent and on a different planet."

Messi's goals helped Barcelona to the club's second treble in its history and he also helped guide Argentina to the Copa America final.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, also scored for fun at Real Madrid, but couldn’t lead his team to any major trophy.
