Liverpool boss Rodgers hoping to keep Johnson

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is hoping that Glen Johnson can earn himself a new contract by performing well between now and the end of the season, reports the

Liverpool Echo.

Johnson could make his return from a lengthy injury lay-off when Liverpool take on Swansea City on Sunday, and with his contract set to run out at the end of next season, Rodgers is looking to secure the England international’s long-term future.

However, it is likely that Johnson will be forced to take a pay cut should he sign a new deal, as the club’s owners are unlikely to continue paying him around £110,000 per week, given that he turns 30 in August.

Rodgers said: “Glen is a player we want to keep. In terms of his contract, I am sure that is something that will be discussed between now and the end of the season.

“I think Steven Gerrard went down to the last year of his contract last summer before that was sorted. I’m sure it’s something the owners will take up when the time is right. At this moment in time I am only really concentrating on the football aspect.”

The former Chelsea and Portsmouth right-back has been at Liverpool since the summer of 2009, racking up 160 appearances and scoring eight goals, and helping to win the League Cup in 2012.
