Dirk Kuyt insists he wasn't taking the mick with his goal celebrations during Liverpool's win at Hull City.

He said: "It was not about Rafa's signals last week - he makes signals like that all the time in games.

"It was just spontaneous. I was just happy because we were struggling in the game to be fair.

"I was really happy to score the third goal and the job was finally done. That was game over."

Realistically, leaders Manchester United need to lose twice to let Liverpool back in - but Kuyt is refusing to throw in the towel.

He said: "It is not game over in the league. We will keep chasing them right to the end."
