Steven Gerrard: Has been troubled by a shoulder problem over the last year

Reports emerged earlier this week that the England midfielder was to have an operation at the end of the season, but the claims have been played down by the Anfield boss.

However, Rodgers did admit that Gerrard had been playing through a shoulder problem all season, and he did not rule out the prospect of surgery being needed in the future.

"There's nothing in that at all, really," Rodgers said. "You'll have noticed over the last year or so, whether he's been playing for Liverpool or England, he's had some taping and strapping on his shoulder - but there is no immediate surgery planned.

"We're just going to see how it goes between now and the end of the season. He's dealt well with it and performed remarkably well, so there is no decision on it at all.

"

Gerrard's long service to Liverpool has been rewarded with a testimonial against Olympiacos in August, with all proceeds from the match being donated to charity.

"He thoroughly deserves it," added Rodgers. "He's been an incredible player for the football club and like the man that he is, he didn't want the testimonial to get in the way of our preparations.

"It's something that he will thoroughly deserve and should be a great day for him."
