Gerrard to get new Anfield deal until 2016: Rodgers

Liverpool will offer captain Steven Gerrard a new contract at the end of the season to keep him at Anfield until at least 2016, according to manager Brendan Rodgers. The 33-year-old midfielder, whose current contract expires at the end of next season, has played a major role in the club's drive towards a first English League title since 1990.


"Steven will be one we look to get a contract to in the summer," Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.


"With a year to go, it's something we will address. I believe Steven will play beyond 2015. He is a player who has really shown his qualities this season.


"Come the summer, he will still only be 34. Looking towards the future, I still think he's going to be a key part of our squad."


Liverpool has been Gerrard's only professional club and for most of his 16-season career, he has been its best player with his ability to take the game by the scruff of the neck with a surging run into the box or a thunderbolt strike from range.


"He has dropped into a new position and played it seamlessly. His intelligence in the game is second to none. He is improving all the time." Rodgers added.
