Only Ian Callaghan and Jamie Carragher have played more games for Liverpool than Steven Gerrard

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has attempted to draw a line under the debate over whether the club did enough to keep Steven Gerrard.

The Reds captain, 34, was offered a new deal in November but has opted to end his 25-year Anfield stay and will join Los Angeles Galaxy in July.

Rodgers said: "Everything is said on the situation that needs to be said."

Gerrard had admitted he would not be leaving Liverpool if the club had offered him a contract last summer.

Rodgers added: "His concentration is now on football, he has announced where he is going so you have all the information and he has done all his interviews.

"History shows players who have been great players here move on and it is an opportunity for other players to grab the mantle."
