Steven Gerrard is committed to finishing his career at Liverpool FC after signing a contract extension at Anfield.
Gerrard has made 630 appearances and scored 159 goals for Liverpool since his debut in November 1998. The England captain's old deal was due to expire at the end of next season but he has now put pen to paper on renewed terms. "I think everyone knows what it means to me," said the 33-year-old Reds skipper. "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.
"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."
Described as "a big part of Liverpool Football Club" by managing director Ian Ayre, Gerrard's finest hour with the club came when he skippered them to the UEFA Champions League title in 2005. He has also won two FA Cups, three League Cups, the UEFA Cup and two UEFA Super Cups during his time at Liverpool. Gerrard has 102 caps for England, making him one of only seven players to have surpassed a century of appearances for the Three Lions.
