Gerrard said: “I am delighted to secure the services of our captain on a new long-term deal. “This shows the ambition of both James and the club as we continue to drive forward to fulfil our ambitions, both domestically and in Europe. James has been a consistent performer for me since I made the decision to hand him the armband in 2018. “His leadership is obvious both on the field and in the dressing room as well. He commands respect but ensures he leads with action and not words.
