Raheem Sterling might be locked in a bitter contract dispute with Liverpool but that has not stopped the forward revealing his biggest desire at the club - his own song by the Kop.

Sterling has rejected the offer of a £100,000-a-week contract from Liverpool, postponing talks over a new contract until the end of the season.

His current deal expires in 2017 and he used a controversial recent television interview to insist he just wants to concentrate on his football between now and the end of the campaign.

He also sparked controversy over the weekend when he was photographed smoking a shisha pipe.

Sterling's hard-line stance over his future has antagonised sections of the Liverpool support and he was heckled by a fan at the recent unveiling of the club's new kit for the 2015-16 season.

But in an interview with the Sunday Times Magazine, Sterling has said his biggest dream is to be serenaded with his own song by Liverpool fans.

He said: "When the crowd's with you there's nothing better.

"My ambition is to have my own song from the Kop. Last season I loved the song for Luis Suarez - Gerrard and [Philippe] Coutinho."
