Gerrard brilliance leaves Dalglish speechless

Kenny Dalglish struggled to find the words to describe Steven Gerrard following the match winning performance of the Liverpool captain against Everton.

The Reds triumphed 3-0 in the Merseyside derby at Anfield on Tuesday evening, with Gerrard scoring all three of the goals for Dalglish's side.

Gerrard scored in the 34th, 51st and 94th minute to become the first player to net a league hat-trick in the derby since Ian Rush did so at Goodison Park in 1982.

And when questioned about his skipper after the game, Dalglish struggled to add to the list of superlatives used to praise the 31-year-old midfielder.

"I am not educated enough to add to whatever anyone else has said about Steven," the Liverpool manager told the club's official website. "He's been fantastic for this football club.

"I left school at 15, my vocabulary is not that great. There is no way I could extol the virtues of Steven Gerrard and do him justice.

"Three goals tonight was fantastic reward for him, and the other three local lads we had didn't do too badly either."

Had Everton won last night, they would have leapfrogged their local rivals into seventh place in the Premier League table and severely damage any faint ambitions Liverpool harbour of qualifying for the Champions League.

Liverpool have, however, closed the gap on fourth placed Arsenal to ten points, and now have ten games to ensure they can secure a place at European football's top table for next season.
