Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard admits last season wasn't good enough.

And the Scouse legend says he's fed-up with trotting out excuses.

"We are Liverpool, we can't finish eighth. We have got to take the criticism for under-performing last year and put it right. We can't be doing post-match interviews saying 'we should have got the points or we were not clinical enough'. We have got to be clinical. We have got to get the points we should get," he told the Liverpool Echo.
