Liverpool boss Rodgers revels in Gerrard influence
Before the Leicester match, Rodgers revealed the 34-year-old midfielder had been offered a new contract and his form against the Foxes suggested there was plenty of life left in Gerrard yet. "We had three super quick players up-front - Sturridge, Suarez and Sterling." "I thought he needed to play in a better role and position," the Northern Irish manager added. Gerrard is out of contract at the end of the season and Rodgers dismissed reports of any disagreement with him. "With him it is about the level he can play at and he is a very important player for us. But he's not 24 anymore." Gerrard then put Liverpool ahead after the break before Jordan Henderson added a third goal late following the red card shown to Leicester defender Wes Morgan for hauling back Rickie Lambert. "If they cannot see the players are having a proper go maybe they need to stay at home. The players are giving everything. I will always look for the positives." "I thought my team played very well. It was a tight game and we were a bit unfortunate to lose. Even when down to 10 men we caused them problems."
