Liverpool's Spearing dismisses height concerns

Liverpool midfielder Jay Spearing has dismissed concerns over his height.

For the man himself, there was never any fear that size would matter when it came to proving himself at the highest level.

"A lot of people have talked about that for a long time, the size difference in the middle of the park," Spearing told

"But I've never been scared to get into a tussle with anyone. I always love a tackle, so as long as I show people I can play football then it's no problem, whatever size I am.

"It's never been an issue for me, I've never really thought about it. All I think about is the football side, and hopefully I'm proving to people that the football side is there."
