Clem says the former Liverpool man is a player he looked up to as a youngster when Jamie and John Barnes were dictating play in the heart of the Anfield midfield.
"When I was in the youth team here Jamie was playing in the first team at Liverpool," recalled Clem.
"Obviously I think he's a great passer, I remember him and John Barnes in the Liverpool team and they were great."
Clem himself is a player who likes to get the ball down and spray passes about, but he shys away from comparisons.
"I'm not going to compare myself to him because I think he's a fantastic player. I had a game with him last Wednesday on the training ground and some of his passes were absolutely superb."
Stephen Clemence is a great admirer of our new signing and fellow middle-man Jamie Redknapp.
