Kevin Nolan settles Frank Lampard, Paul Scholes and Steven Gerrard debate

Former Premier League star Kevin Nolan has settled the Frank Lampard vs. Paul Scholes vs. Steven Gerrard debate.

The fierce debate over who was the best out of Lampard, Scholes and Gerrard continues to rage on.

Nolan, who played for Bolton Wanderers, Newcastle United and West Ham United during his career, played against all three midfielders and has given his verdict.

He rates Liverpool icon Gerrard ahead of both Lampard and Scholes, claiming he could do anything on the pitch.

The 41-year-old, who is now an assistant coach at West Ham, also recalled what it was like playing against him.

"I just think [Steven Gerrard] could do anything, he had everything, you know the holding one, you could play him out on the right, he could be at right-back, he could be the attacking one [midfielder]," he said.

Nolan added: "Playing against him was just so difficult. I mean look, we haven't even mentioned [Frank] Lampard, [Patrick] Vieira and all these in this. But Steven had something which I don't think any of the others [had]. He had everything and I don't think all the others had everything."

Gerrard spent his entire Premier League career at Liverpool, where he made an impressive 504 appearances.

He scored 120 goals from midfield but failed to win the league title during his legendary career.

Despite not getting his hands on the Premier League trophy, many critics - including Nolan - believe he comes out on top when it comes to the debate between him, Lampard and Scholes.
