Steven Gerrard insists he remains fully committed to Liverpool after rubbishing reports of a dressing room bust-up with Rafael Benitez.

The Liverpool captain has been the subject of fresh rumours regarding a move abroad this week following claims that he confronted Benitez during the FA Cup home exit at the hands of Reading last week.

"I've heard about a dozen versions of the same rumour and they're all as daft as each other," he told the Daily Post.

"I'd love to know who comes up with this kind of stuff because they must have an unbelievable imagination.

"Nothing happened, that's an absolute fact. But if anyone thinks this nonsense unsettles either me or the club then they're mistaken, if anything it's brought everyone even closer together because we've all had a good laugh about it.

"In the time since he's been here I've never had a problem with the manager or his staff, and certainly not at half-time in the Reading game when I was actually receiving treatment for the injury I'd picked up during the first half.

"The important thing for me now is trying to get myself fit as soon as possible so I can get back to working with the manager and the team to try and improve our situation."

Addressing reports that he might leave for any one of Real Madrid, Inter Milan or even Manchester City, Gerrard added: "All the stories about me leaving are unfounded. The fans can be assured that I am doing all I can to get back to top form and help Liverpool finish the season on a high."
