Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher doesn't expect any guarantees from new gaffer Brendan Rodgers.

The veteran knows he must battle for a start under the new manager.

"I've got a year to go on my contract. Whenever the manager calls upon me I'll be there, wanting to play and wanting to do as well as I possibly can," he told the Telegraph.

"My only motivation is to play well for Liverpool, for Liverpool to win games, hopefully get a trophy and get into the Champions League.

"It's about playing as many games as I can and see where we go from there."
