Liverpool's Gerrard scoffs at PFA concerns

Liverpool skipper Gerrard has told PFA chief Gordon Taylor to butt out of the club's business.

Last week Taylor insisted the England ace, 27, was heading for burn-out after an astonishing workload.

The players' union chairman claimed "if Gerrard was a racehorse you would have the RSPCA on to you".

Tuesday's tie was Gerrard's EIGHTH game in less than a month for Rafa Benitez's side and his country.

Yet Gerrard roared: "It's not up to anyone else but the manager, the Liverpool coaching staff and myself to decide if I'm playing too much.

"I've worked with Rafa for over three years so he knows my physical condition better than anyone and he will know if and when the time is right for me to have a rest.

"I've just played eight games in 24 days so I suppose it is a heavy workload. But I'm not the type of player who looks for a rest - I'd play in every single game if I could."
