Redknapp said Liverpool a great place to play football when you're performing well because the club will "look after you."
The 48-year-old is of the opinion that Mohamed Salah shouldn't be on more money than Van Dijk, as the defender cannot be replaced.
"The players have the power. One thing I learned from being at this club is that they will reward you and look after you when you are doing well," Redknapp said on Sky Sports.
"But sometimes if we give him big money. I wouldn’t give anyone more money than Virgil van Dijk. He should be on the most.
"They will find another Mo Salah but you won’t find another Van Dijk. There will always be another great striker who comes to this club."
