Liverpool skipper swears at ref

Steven Gerrard is likely to find himself in hot water with the FA after aiming a two-fingered gesture at referee Andre Marriner during Liverpool’s defeat against Wigan last night.

Gerrard appeared to give the V-sign to Marriner as the referee booked him in the 81st minute of the 1-0 defeat. Somehow we doubt he was suggesting that the foul on James McCarthy was his second bookable offence.

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez had his Arsene Wenger goggles on. He said: “I didn’t see anything, I was too far away.”
