Steven Gerrard at Liverpool: I'm happy I stayed

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said he will stay at Liverpool for the rest of his career after admitting he is "loving his football".

Gerrard has turned down opportunities to leave Anfield in the past, including a move to Chelsea in 2004.

"Everyone's aware my head has been turned on a couple of occasions but it's never been enough to move," the 32-year-old told Football Focus.

"I have no regrets. I'm happy I stayed and I'm loving my football here."

He added: "I'm born in Liverpool, I'm a Liverpool supporter. It means an awful lot more to me playing here."

Gerrard made his Liverpool debut in November 1998 and has made nearly 600 appearances.

He has won an array of trophies, including the Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup, Uefa Cup and the Uefa Super Cup, the only one eluding him is the Premier League title.

"I've played in some wonderful grounds around the world. But you can't beat the buzz of 'You'll Never Walk Alone' and when you touch the Anfield sign," added Gerrard.

Despite the Reds' disappointing start to the season, the England captain still believes a top-four finish in the Premier League and a trophy remains a realistic aim.

The Reds are 14th in the Premier League, while they have won one and lost one of their Europa League games.

Asked what Liverpool's realistic target was, Gerrard added: "Top four and a trophy."

Questioned whether that was still achievable, he said: "Yes. We're six games in. The Norwich win will be the catalyst to push us on."

Liverpool beat Norwich 5-2 on Saturday, but lost 3-2 at home to Udinese on Thursday in the Europa League.

Gerrard said: "I think teams will find it really difficult to play against us and I'm confident we can go on a run of winning games."
