Much was made of the relationship between Rodgers and Gerrard over the weekend after the 34-year-old midfielder was left out of Liverpool’s starting line-up for their 1-0 victory over Stoke City at Anfield on Saturday.
Gerrard moved quickly to rubbish any rumours that he and Rodgers had fallen out, before news broke that the club have offered the former England international a one-year rolling contract, which includes a pay-cut.

“It is a big move not just in his life but in terms of committing where his next contract is going to be,” Rodgers told the media at Melwood during his press conference ahead of Tuesday’s Premier League clash against Leicester City.
“There are probably many things Steven would have to think about in a decision like this but it certainly won’t be money.”
