The 29-year-old has finally entered the last 12-months of his contract at Anfield and remains a key member of the Northern Irishman’s squad.

Jon Flanagan’s recent form and subsequent rise to prominence have led some quarters to speculate over his future, but Rodgers had sought to dispel rumours of an impending exit by insisting that he intends to offer the England man a new deal in the near future.

“Glen is a player we want to keep,” Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.

“In terms of his contract, I am sure that is something that will be discussed between now and the end of the season.

“I think Steven Gerrard went down to the last year of his contract last summer before that was sorted.

“I’m sure it’s something the owners will take up when the time is right. At this moment in time I am only really concentrating on the football aspect.

“We are all fighting to be best that we can be for the club.”
