Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher admits he is open-minded about his future at the club as the clock ticks down on his current contract.

The veteran centre-back turns 35 next Monday and his existing deal only runs until June. He made only his second Barclays Premier League start of the season in Saturday's 5-0 win over Norwich as manager Brendan Rodgers dropped Martin Skrtel, although he has played regularly in Europe.

It has been difficult for Carragher to watch from the bench for most of the campaign but he is determined to make the most of any opportunity. Asked whether he could play on beyond this season, the former England international said: "That's up to the manager and the club will make decisions like that."
