Carragher comes up against the club he supported as a boy this Sunday in the final derby of his 16-year Anfield career.
The 35-year-old will swap Melwood for the Sky Sports studios next season after signing up as a pundit, and Gerrard is desperate to send his long-time friend and team-mate off in style.
The Liverpool captain said: "I think being local lads we feel the passion in the city.
"Jamie will be playing at the weekend, he will be one of the first on the teamsheet and has been brilliant since he came back into the team.
"We're hoping to get a nice derby victory for Carra to remember because you will always remember your last derby.
"I'm going to miss him more than anyone. I'm close to Jamie on and off the pitch. It's an emotional time him packing it in but he is going on to Sky and I'm sure he'll do a fantastic job."
