Rafael Benitez dismissed the uproar that marred the end of Liverpool´s ill-tempered draw in Rotterdam on Sunday against Feyenoord.

The Liverpool manager saw six of his players booked - there were nine cautions in all during the 1-1 draw - and skipper Steven Gerrard come close to being sent off for a shove in the face of Feyenoord´s Theo Lucius as the game deteriorated into a melee involving most of the players on the pitch.

Benitez said: ´´I do not think Steven will be in trouble, there was a lot going on out on the pitch. It was hard to see what was going on and I would want to review the match before commenting."
