Liverpool ace Steven Gerrard was upset with his dismissal for England in last night's 1-1 draw with World Cup qualifying opponents Ukraine.

Gerrard suggested the referee had been card happy in the wake of his red card.

The Liverpool skipper said: "I don't think there was a bad tackle in the game, was there? And I think the referee's given seven yellow cards.

"So, it's disappointing for me because it's a red card - my first one in 98 caps.

"But we play San Marino next. I'm sure the boys can do the job without me and then I'll be available for Poland.

"I'm gutted over the red, but happy with my performance."
