“It’s a massive weight off my mind,” Gerrard told Liverpoolfc.tv minutes after signing the contract. “Over the last twelve months there has been a lot of speculation about my future and it hasn’t helped my football. It’s nice to sign a four year deal with no clauses to make sure this situation doesn’t happen again.
“Next season you’ll see a Steven Gerrard who has got a clear mind and who is focused on his football. I’ll be a better player next season.
“I think the speculation has affected me, though not too much because I think at the right times I’ve still pulled out the big performances.
“It’ll be different over the next four years because that speculation has gone and won’t come back. I’m looking forward to playing with a free mind, relaxed and concentrated solely on football.
“Liverpool will get the best of Steven Gerrard because I feel ready to move into the prime years of my career. I’m only 25 and I think over the next few years you’ll see me playing my best football and I hope to lead this club to more success and more silverware.
