Steven Gerrard says the he is 'feeling strong' and is on course to return from injury in time for pre-season training.

The Liverpool skipper underwent shoulder surgery which forced him to miss the tail-end of the 2012/13 season.

It had been feared that Gerrard could miss the start of the new campaign or a portion of pre-season.

However the Liverpool legend has told the Anfield club's official website that he is in good shape and raring to go.

"It's going well and feeling strong," he said.

"I'm six weeks down the line with the rehabilitation from surgery.

"I'm not too far away, maybe a couple of weeks away from contact and being back in full training if everything goes well. I'm looking forward to it.

"It's probably the longest break I've had at this time of year - being out of the game for six weeks is enough, I'm itching to get back."

The news comes as a further boost for Liverpool who at one point looked likely to start the new campaign without a host of first team regulars.

Daniel Sturridge is now in line to return to action in August having picked up an ankle injury while on international duty with England in May.
