Gerrard delighted to celebrate 300th landmark with Liverpool victory

Steven Gerrard was thrilled to mark his 300th Premier League game for Liverpool with a goal in the 3-1 victory over Blackburn on Sunday.

Gerrard told Sky Sports: "It's a really proud day to clock up that many games. It's a great day, a good performance, we're just disappointed with conceding late on.

"Blackburn were very good defensively, we had to be patient but eventually the opening came."

Gerrard and Torres have now scored more than 50 goals between them this season, and the skipper paid tribute to the Spaniard's impact since his move from Atletico Madrid last summer.

"He's a good player, he makes good runs and he's a pleasure to play with," Gerrard added. "To get 30 goals in his first season is unbelievable and I'm sure he's got a few left."

Victory took Liverpool five points clear of city rivals Everton in the race for the final Champions League spot after the Toffees could only draw with Birmingham on Saturday.

"It was important to make it five points," Gerrard said. "It's going to be a good chase but we're confident we can achieve fourth place." Liverpool have been in the news for the wrong reasons this week after co-owner Tom Hicks called for chief executive Rick Parry to resign, and Gerrard admitted his disappointment at the publicity.

"We're Liverpool Football Club, we're better than that," he said. "But we (the players) have got more important things to worry about."
