The No.25 became the fastest Reds keeper in history to reach 100 clean sheets when skippering the side against Aston Villa last week.
He insists that being captain of Liverpool is something he'll look back on in years to come with pride.
"Even if it is for a short period of time - I can be very proud," said Reina in this week's LFC Weekly. "I would rather somebody else be captain if it meant the team was winning games and winning trophies - but when I retire and look back on my career I will be able to say, 'I was the captain of Liverpool.' Few people are given such a privilege."
Reaching 100 clean sheets quicker than legends like Elisha Scott, Ray Clemence and Bruce Grobbelaar is something else the Spaniard can be proud of, but such records might be even harder for foreign players to break in the future.
"I wouldn't say records like these are important to me as an individual," he reflects. "They're just numbers. Being a part of Liverpool's history is very important and humbling, though, because it's not easy to come from another country and achieve these kind of records - there aren't many examples now of foreign players staying at one club for a long period of time.
"In the future, maybe there will be fewer opportunities for players to match or to beat records from the past because there are so many transfers and a greater movement across Europe."
