Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has urged his side to give departing skipper Steven Gerrard the perfect send-off by going all the way in the FA Cup this season.

Rodgers was speaking after seeing Gerrard net both goals in a 2-1 third round win at AFC Wimbledon, which set up a fourth round clash at home to Bolton Wanderers, who now have former Reds striker Emile Heskey among their ranks.

And with the FA Cup final scheduled for 30th May, Gerrard's 35th birthday, Rodgers is keen to mark the exit of the club legend in grand style.

He told reporters: "Well the FA Cup final is on his birthday, so there would be no better way for us to mark it - that would be a wonderful send-off for him.

"There are a lot of games to play in between, but we've targeted a cup victory this season, so we're still very much in line for that moving into the second part of the season.

"The idea is to get a cup run and if we can do it, that would be really special of course."

Fourth round draw:
Southampton/Ipswich v Crystal Palace
Cambridge United v Manchester United
Blackburn v Swansea
Chelsea v Millwall/Bradford
Derby v Scunthorpe/Chesterfield
Preston v Sheffield United
Birmingham v West Brom
Aston Villa v Bournemouth
Cardiff v Reading
Liverpool v Bolton
Burnley/Tottenham v Leicester
Brighton v Arsenal
Rochdale v Stoke
Sunderland v Fulham/Wolves
Doncaster/Bristol City v Everton/West Ham
Manchester City v Middlesbrough
