Rodgers confirms Gerrard offered new Liverpool deal

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that the club have offered club captain Steven Gerrard a new deal, according to the BBC.

The 34-year-old’s future has been the subject of intense speculation at whether the club would offer him a new contract with the player not in the greatest form, while others claimed any contract offered would purely be sentimental.

Rodgers continually rubbished these claims and after the club renewed deals for the likes of Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge, they have now moved to tie their stalwart down with the player available on a free at the end of the season.

This is hugely positive news for fans who have had to deal with reports of a rift forming between their manager and Gerrard in recent days.

The captain was swift in his response to brand the claims “nonsense” with Rodgers following suit in his press conference ahead of the midweek fixtures.

These reports come after Gerrard was dropped to the bench for their 1-0 win over Stoke this weekend as the Kop boss continues to search for a winning formula.

Liverpool are paying the price of a poor start to the season and currently sit in 12th place after losing six of their opening 13 games.
