Steven Gerrard takes swipe at Chelsea fans after Stamford Bridge ovation

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard hit out at the Chelsea boo-boys during his post-match interview with Sky Sports presenter Andy Burton yesterday, delivering an absolute zinger to supporters that spent the majority of Sunday's 1-1 draw in west London poking fun at the Reds midfielder.

The 34-year-old has been the butt of all jokes at Stamford Bridge ever since his infamous slip against the Blues last season gifted former striker Demba Ba a precious goal at Anfield which all but ended the Merseyside club's Premier League title hopes.

Chelsea fans have created a song in tribute to that fateful day, and it was clearly heard being sung around the stadium at regular intervals yesterday, as the home following revelled in rubbing the opposition skipper's nose in it.

Gerrard's performance appeared unaffected by the reception he was receiving, especially after netting the equalising goal just before half-time to cancel out John Terry's early opener.

Still, Brendan Rodgers opted to withdraw the former England captain early, which prompted a standing ovation from both sets of supporters as the Premier League legend left the Stamford Bridge pitch as a player perhaps for the last time.

Asked after the game what he thought of the warm tribute from everyone in the ground, Gerrard was quick to play down his appreciation for those people that had spent most of the game making fun of him, and came out with a hilarious barb that is sure to wind-up Chelsea followers even more.
