Brendan Rodgers wants to offer Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard a new contract in the summer.

The Reds skipper’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the 2014/15 season, with the 33-year-old yet to give an indication whether he intends to continue playing beyond his contract.

Gerrard has been one of the driving forces behind Liverpool’s Premier League title challenge this season, scoring 13 goals and making 10 assists in 32 appearances.

“Steven will be one we look to get a contract to in the summer,” Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.

“I believe Steven will play beyond 2015. He is a player who has really shown his qualities this season.

“Come the summer, he will still only be 34. Looking towards the future, I still think he’s going to be a key part of our squad.”
