Liverpool's Carling Cup winning captain Steven Gerrard was upset for cousin Anthony after yesterday's final.

Cardiff City defender Anthony Gerrard missed his penalty in the decisive shootout.

Captain Gerrard understandably had sympathy for his cousin. He said: "It is always cruel when it goes to penalties. It was always going to be the case that one of us was going to be sad and one of us was going to be celebrating.

"Obviously, I am delighted to have won the trophy but I feel for Anthony and Cardiff. It doesn't matter what I say to him. I know that he will be down."
