Gerrard thanks Chelsea fans for ‘turning up for once’…


Steven Gerrard was given a rough ride by Chelsea supporters in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, but hit back with a dig of his own after the game.

Asked about his standing ovation when leaving the pitch in the 79th minute, Gerrard, who scored the Reds’ equaliser, declined the chance to thank the Chelsea fans.

“Chelsea fans have shown respect for a couple of seconds, but they’ve slaughtered me all game,” he said. “So I’m not going to get drawn into wishing the Chelsea fans well…nice of them to turn up for once today.”

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho praised Gerrard following his last match against the Blues before leaving for LA Galaxy, saying: “I will miss him, yes. I want my league to be always the best league and have amazing players.”
