The veteran Reds skipper is leaving Anfield at the end of the season for LA Galaxy, but wants to see the club continue to be successful in his absence, pointing at Sterling and Henderson as crucial to their future.
“They need to sign [Sterling] now,” Gerrard was quoted by ESPN.
“Not just him, Jordan Henderson as well.
“When I was coming through at Liverpool, every time you got within a couple of years left your contract would be renewed and there would no worrying or panic stage but I see Henderson with a year left and I see Sterling – it is in the paper too much – and I know there is no smoke without fire.
“So, for me, the message to the club is to get these done sharpish because these are the future of the club and I want to watch this team do well, in cup finals and challenging for the league.”
