“With a year to go, it’s something we will address. I believe Steven will play beyond 2015. He is a player who has really shown his qualities this season.
“Come the summer, he will still only be 34. Looking towards the future, I still think he’s going to be a key part of our squad.”
“He has dropped into a new position and played it seamlessly. His intelligence in the game is second to none. He is improving all the time.
“It’s one where he has been brilliant for me as a captain and as a player this season and I would like that to continue.
Gerrard was at fault for Chelsea’s opening goal in last week’s 2-0 defeat to the Blues at Anfield.
The result handed the initiative back to Manchester City in the title race, with Manuel Pellegrini’s side just three games away from claiming their second title in three seasons.
However, Rodgers says no one at Anfield is blaming Gerrard for that error last weekend, with the sole focus now on beating Crystal Palace on Monday.
“There is no blame attached to him because he has been instrumental in where we are to this day and he will continue to be in the coming years,” Rodgers added.
“Steven has been brilliant on the training field this week. He has narrowed his focus like the team has and now we’re looking forward to playing Crystal Palace.”
