Mr. Gerrard loves Liverpool...
Gerrard admitted he was overjoyed to have put pen to paper on a

are heading firmly in the right direction towards success.
The Reds captain inked his new deal at Melwood on Monday morning and
immediately afterwards, sat down with LFC TV to express his delight and
hopes for the future.
Here are excerpts of his interview...
Steven, first of all, many congratulations - news announced
today that you've signed a new contract with Liverpool Football Club.
What does it mean to you?
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 family. It's great news.
You still had time left on your existing contract, so how important was it for you to get an extension?
It lets me know the club thinks an awful lot of me and want me here.
There was a year left [on my contract] which was quite unusual - I think
it was the first time I've got that far down into a contract. 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 for the next two years.
