Mark Lawrenson has infuriated Liverpool over his comments on Irish radio.
The former Anfield defender claimed on Irish radio that Robbie Keane is set to be sold next month â because Steven Gerrard hinted as much to him in a private conversation.
A Reds spokesman said: âMarkâs remarks are his interpretation of a private chat.
"They do no accurately reflect Stevenâs opinion of Robbie and they certainly do not tally with Stevenâs recollection of the conversation itself.â
Lawro tried to dig himself out of a hole by insisting: âIâm sorry if I caused any aggravation but it wasnât meant to. Gerrardâs name should never have come up.
âIt wasnât Steven saying that, it was me saying it.â
