Liverpool boss Rodgers confident owners want new Gerrard deal

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits he can't imagine seeing Steven Gerrard leave Anfield. If FSG ask Rodgers for his opinion on whether Gerrard should get an extension, however, the manager's response will not even be up for discussion.

"As yet I don't believe anything has been done," said Rodgers. "Steven and I have spoken a number of times. His feeling the last time we spoke was get through this season and see how that goes. His focus is on really helping the group to go forward.

"There's no doubt that between now and the end of this season the contract will be looked at. With each day that goes on you see the real importance he still has to the club. At 32 years of age, he still looks so fit, strong and you can see his influence on the team.

When asked if FSG truly appreciated Gerrard's worth, Rodgers replied: "I would hope so. They watch all the games from afar. They understand and I have regular dialogue with them. I can only feedback in terms of his qualities both as a player and as a leader of the club.

"As a captain he's been phenomenal. It's not like they don't get to know about it. Between now and the end of the season we will have a clear look at that for sure."
