Steven Gerrard has hinted that he sees his future at Liverpool.

The England midfielder has been repeatedly linked with a move to Chelsea, who were beaten by Liverpool in the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday.

But Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo: “After the Champions League final I’ll be sitting down with Rick Parry and the gaffer and discussing the future.

“Obviously a result like this helps everyone at the club and we’ll have a lot of positive things to talk about.”

Earlier this season, Gerrard expressed doubts about whether Liverpool could win the Champions League this season.

But on Wednesday, he stated: “I’ve said all along all I wanted was to see the club going in the right direction and this shows we are.”

Gerrard paid tribute to the club’s fans after their surprise victory over the Premier League champions.

“The ground was shaking 50 minutes before the game during the warm-up. I have never known anything like it,” he told Liverpool’s website.

“At the end I felt like jumping in and celebrating with the fans.

“They are the best in the country by miles and I just hope they enjoy the final as much.

“We have beaten the Premiership champions for the first time in five attempts this season, but it was well worth the wait.

“To work hard and have our supporters behind us and believing until the end, you run a little bit more,” he said.

“Before, I said that they were maybe the best supporters in England. Now maybe they are the best supporters in Europe.”

Defender Djimi Traore added: “The atmosphere was extraordinary, we warned our fans we would give our best.

“When you score a goal after four minutes against a team like Chelsea it is very difficult to hold, but we did it.

“I have been here for six years and it is one of my greatest nights, I hope at Istanbul it will be better.”
