Gerrard bites back after 'silly questions' at Rangers press conference

Steven Gerrard might have taken his Rangers side to the top of the Premiership but some people are still more concerned about what he thinks about Liverpool. 

That was the case at the press conference on Friday, ahead of the Hearts game on Sunday.

Liverpool travel to Old Trafford on Sunday with a perfect eight wins from eight games record, and sit two points ahead of Celtic.

One journalist asked who Gerrard thought would win the game between Liverpool and Man United and he gave a very clear answer – “Liverpool win”.

That wasn’t enough for the journalist though who wanted to press for more details and possibly a headline he could hang a sensational story off.

Gerrard wasn’t having any of it, though, and snapped back: “Are you going to continue to ask me these silly questions?

“They’ve played eight and won eight, haven’t they?

“The front three are in fantastic form, they’re not conceding many goals, they’re European champions.

“Do you want any other reasons why I think Liverpool are going to beat Manchester United? Did you think I was going to say anything different?”

It might be more respectful for journalists to stick to Rangers matters in the future, although the journalist might well think twice before going down that road again after getting a flea in the ear from Gerrard.
