Xabi Alonso does not want Steven Gerrard rushed back into first Liverpool team action unless he is 100% fit.

The Reds captain has been out for almost three weeks with a hamstring injury.

Alonso said: "It is good to see Stevie coming back but we have to wait until he is 100 per cent.

"It is not intelligent to rush him back. Whenever he feels okay he will be a big part of our squad again."
