Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has vowed to keep playing and fight for his place in the team.


The Kop great has lost his place in Kenny Dalglish’s team in recent weeks, with the sound pairing of Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger proving effective.


Steven Gerrard just signed a new deal that will make him a club ambassador once he finishes playing, but Carragher said he was only concentrating on playing when a similar deal was mooted for him.


“If the manager has mentioned it (an ambassador role) I'm sure we will discuss it in the future,” he said.


“But that's not something I want to talk about at the minute. I still want to concentrate on playing. I want to get as much out of my career as I possibly can.


“We will speak about something in the future. I'm the same as Steven - we love playing for the club and we just want to help in any way that we can.


“Last week was about Steven and rightly so. He is the figurehead of the club as Kenny was 20 to 30 years ago.”


The 33-year-old has been a mainstay for Liverpool over the past ten years, making a total of 684 appearances for the Reds.


Despite starting in the 0-0 draw with Stoke City on Saturday, the former England international has found playing time limited this season, prompting speculation regarding his career once he has finished playing.


However, this has not put him off his football and he appears to be as determined as ever to make his mark on the team.


He will be hoping to keep his place in the team when Dalglish’s side travel to Bolton in the evening kick-off on Saturday.
