Gerrard cleared of affray

Published Add your comment

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is a free man after he was cleared of unjustly attacking a man in a bar.

The England midfielder admitted hitting Marcus McGee, 34, in a Southport bar last December and a jury at the city's Crown Court accepted his explanation that it was in self-defence.

The 29-year-old was the only one of seven defendants to be cleared over the "explosion of violence" at the Lounge Inn during which Mr McGee lost a tooth and suffered facial cuts.
