Liverpool deny Lawrenson claims over Keane sale

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 - because Steven Gerrard hinted as much to him in a private conversation.

A Reds spokesman said: "Mark's remarks are his interpretation of a private chat.

"They do no accurately reflect Steven's opinion of Robbie and they certainly do not tally with Steven's recollection of the conversation itself."

Lawro tried to dig himself out of a hole by insisting: "I'm sorry if I caused any aggravation but it wasn't meant to. Gerrard's name should never have come up.

"It wasn't Steven saying that, it was me saying it."
