Cape Town - Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has offered the club's rising star, and contract rebel, Raheem Sterling some advice.

The BBC report that Gerrard believes Sterling should remain with the club "for the next few years".

The 20-year-old starlet has come in for widespread criticism for his failure to agree terms to a new Anfield deal. Sterling has rejected the club's latest £100,000-a-week offer and is looking to leave the club, something which Gerrard is advising against.

Gerrard says Sterling should stay at the club because "Liverpool is the place for him to learn".

Sterling has the potential to become a fan favourite in the same mould as Luis Suarez and Fernando Torres should he stay, said Gerrard.

Gerrard also warned Sterling that first team football would not be guaranteed at any portential new club with Gerrard adding that Sterling "deserves to be playing every week."

Sterling scored 11 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions for the Reds this term.
