Steven Gerrard says he is happy to know Liverpool still think an awful lot of their skipper after penning a new two-year deal on Monday.

The 33-year-old has committed his future to the Reds until the summer of 2015 after the midfielder produced one of his most impressive seasons for the Merseyside outfit.

The England captain emphatically quashed any concerns over his fitness and form as he scored nine goals and made nine assists in 34 successive Premier League games before undergoing a shoulder operation in May.

And Gerrard, who lifted the Champions League trophy in 2005, is ecstatic to extend his career with his boyhood club.

“I’ve been here that long and so to extend, it’s a big day for me and I’m really happy for myself and my family. It’s great news,” Gerrard told Liverpool’s website.

“It lets me know the club thinks an awful lot of me and want me here.

“I’m glad it’s all done and it’s happened at the right time before the season, so I can just focus on playing as well as I can.”

Gerrard has scored 159 goals in 629 appearances for Liverpool after making his Reds debut in 1998.
