Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has revealed he's enjoying life under Brendan Rodgers amid talk that he's set for a new Reds deal, according to Sky Sports.

The Reds skipper has 18 months left to run on his Liverpool contract, and has revealed he's loving life under new manager Brendan Rodgers.

But the England midfielder admits his long-term future is uncertain, and remains in the hands of the club, although Gerrard says he wants to play on for as long as possible.

"We'll have to wait and see," said Gerrard. "I'm contracted for another 18 months, and I'm really happy and enjoying my football.

"I feel physically strong and I want to go on for as long as I can. I love playing for the club - I'm captain, I'm living the dream. I don't want that to end, and hopefully I can play and contribute in this new regime under Brendan Rodgers."

The 32-year-old has spent his entire career at Anfield, despite interest from Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid in the past.

And Gerrard wants to continue performing for the Reds at the highest level, especially after revealing how much he's enjoying playing under former-Swansea boss Rodgers.

"It's very exciting training's very good, and his ideas and philosophy are certainly exciting myself and the rest of the players."

Rodgers recorded his first Liverpool league win at the weekend, as a Luis Suarez hat-trick helped the Reds beat Norwich 5-2 at Carrow Road.

Liverpool fielded a young team against Chris Hughton's Norwich, hinting at a bright future for the Merseyside club. Spanish starlet Suso impressed, as did young England winger Raheem Sterling, and Gerrard wants to be a part of this new look team going forward.
