Steven Gerrard has today paid tribute to the magnificent Newcastle fans, who gave a standing ovation to Gerrard, following his tremendous performance for Liverpool in yesterday’s hammering of Newcastle by 5-1.
Gerrard – Newcastle fans know what football is all about
The 28-year-old Liverpool captain left the field midway through the second-half, after his job was done for the day, to standing applause from all around the packed St. James’ Park, after scoring two and he surely would have had more goals but for a certain Mr. Shay Given in the Newcastle goal.
It was the Reds biggest win of the season, and after the game Steven says he was flattered by the reception he received from the Geordie fans.
“It’s always very flattering to get applause like that.”
“And particularly when you come to a place like Newcastle, where the fans know what football’s about,”
“It was flattering, and much appreciated.”
Good words from Gerrard – and we wonder how much this lad would be worth in the transfer market – if Robinho is worth £32M?
Dream on Jose Mourinho, because he’s not for sale.
