The deal has been in the offing for the last couple of months and is reward for the significant progress the club have made in two years under the Northern Irishman's leadership.

Rodgers, who had a year remaining on his existing agreement with an option for a further 12 months, guided the Reds to second in the Barclays Premier League this season from seventh 12 months ago and always said he would sign his new contract once the campaign was over.

"I am both humbled and privileged to be offered the chance to extend my stay at this great club," he told liverpoolfc.com.

"I am very happy to build on the foundations we have built over the last two years and now we move on to the next phase which I believe will be as exciting, challenging and rewarding."
