Gerrard Commits Future To Liverpool

Gerrard Signs New Long Term  Contract

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has signed a new long-term contract that will almost certainly last until the end of his career. Gerrard, who made his Liverpool debut in November 1998, has also agreed to take an ambassadorial role when he retires in the coming years.

It has been a great past couple of days for the star, scoring the only winning goal from the spot against Manchester City last night and now signing this contract.

"I'm very happy. It's a very proud day for myself and my family," said Gerrard, after signing the deal.

Gerrard has made an astonishing 556 appearances for Liverpool and that figure continues to increase as he puts his injury fears behind him. 394 of his appearances come in the Premier League.

Will he surpass one-club man Ian Callaghan, who play 640 league games... Time will tell.

  • 566 Liverpool appearances
  • 144 Liverpool goals
  • 89 England caps
  • 19 England goals
