Liverpool boss Rodgers confirms new contract plans for Gerrard

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed plans for a new deal to be tabled to Steven Gerrard.

Gerrard is 33 in May but, going into the clash at Aston Villa, has played every second of Liverpool's 30 Premier League games this season.

Rodgers said: "He has a year left and it's something he and I are about to discuss, then I will take that through to the board upstairs. There's no doubt this is a player who has given so much to the club, but he's also got a lot more to give as well.

"His focus has been to concentrate on the team getting better and improving but it's obviously something I want him to know, that he's very much a part of what we are doing here, and that's something we will look at between now and the summer.

"He's not one of those who takes it easy once or twice in a week because he has a game. He has his foot to the floor every day. That's why he's the man and the player he is. He's an incredible player and I've never thought about replacing him because he has many more years left in him."
