Liverpool legend Ian Rush has praised Steven Gerrard as he plans to play out his career at Anfield.

Gerrard, 28, has two years left on his contract, worth about £110,000 a week, and yesterday revealed he would welcome the chance to sign a four-year extension.

"It's great for Liverpool and the supporters," Rush said. "Stevie is a fantastic player and the fact he wants to commit to the club is great news.

"He's loyal and loyalty doesn't seem to be in the game that much these days. He and Jamie Carragher are both loyal to Liverpool and it's nice to see that. The supporters appreciate that as well.

"I'm not surprised because it's a good time for Liverpool. If Gerrard commits long term it will give even more of a buzz to the place."
