LONDON (REUTERS) - Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has urged the club's American owners to agree a new deal with manager Brendan Rodgers as soon as possible.

High-scoring Liverpool are second in the Premier League, four points adrift of Chelsea but with a game in hand, and Gerrard said the Northern Irish manager had proved he was a "perfect fit" since joining in 2012.

"I am absolutely delighted he is here and I hope there is a lot of movement in Boston now because they have got to get him signed up as soon as possible," the captain told reporters.

"For me, I think he deserves a very long contract here and he is perfect for this club."
