Steven Gerrard has urged Raheem Sterling to follow his footsteps and stay loyal to the club by signing a new deal this summer.

The England international is yet to sign a new deal at Anfield, causing months and months of transfer talk.

A whole host of clubs have been interested with Real Madrid and Manchester City leading the way, whilst talks of a potential new deal have continued to linger in the background.

Gerrard, who has been a life long Liverpool player will call time on his career for a retirement swansong in Major League Soccer but the current Reds captain has called 0n the youngster to pledge his future to the club.

“For me, I am always going to be biased towards this club,” Gerrard said. “My advice to Raheem is he needs a manager who is going to play him, to coach him, to believe in him.

“I think there is no-one better for him than Brendan Rodgers. I think he should sign a new deal.

“Brendan is a fantastic man manager, he puts a lot of time and effort into every player in the squad.

“The danger for younger players is they want it all too soon and go to another club and just become a number.”
