Liverpool boss Benitez praises Gerrard for keeping cool over Marseille taunts
Gerro, who headed a 23rd-minute winner, was struck in the chest by a cigarette lighter.
But Gerrard just rubbed his chest and got on with the game.
Benitez said: "Steven handled it very well. He's a great professional, everyone knows that. This is something that the UEFA delegates will need to take note of."
