Rodgers says Gerrard has 'carried' Liverpool for too long

Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers Steven Gerrard has "carried this club for nearly 13 years" and invites his other players to pick up the "baton of responsibility."

Rodgers commends Gerrard's "superb" range of passing and commitment and says his side need to turn their good performances into wins ahead of their Saturday clash with Southampton.

The Reds lost 2-1 to Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday, ending their eight match unbeaten run.
