Steven Gerrard Signs Two-Year Liverpool Contract (PICTURES)

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has signed a two-year contract extension, the club have announced.

The 33-year-old, who has spent his entire career at Anfield, put pen to paper on his new deal at the club's Melwood training ground this morning.

The England skipper told the club website: "I think everyone knows what it means to me.

"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."

Gerrard, who was appointed Reds skipper by Rafael Benítez in 2004, made his debut for the club in 1998 and has scored 159 goals in 630 appearances.

The Merseysider has won three League Cups, two FA Cups, two European Super Cups, a Uefa Cup and a Champions League winners' medal with his boyhood team.

However, barring a minor miracle, Gerrard will end his career on L4 without an elusive Premier League title.
