Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish feels Steven Gerrard still has seven years left in the game.

The captain, 32, struck a hat-trick in their derby win this week.

Dalglish said: "Stevie will look after himself because all the lads know how to do that these days.

"Whatever is going to happen, whilst he is here he will be a fantastic asset for us.

"We'll go along with that and manage Steven as well he manages himself."
