Liverpool's Xabi: Let's be careful with skipper return

Xabi Alonso has urged Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez to be careful with Steven Gerrard's return from hamstring injury.

"It's good to see Stevie coming back but we have to wait until he is one hundred per cent," Alonso told liverpoolfc.tv.

"It's not intelligent to rush him back. Whenever he feels okay he will be a big part of our squad again."

Gerrard hopes to be fit for next week's Champions League tie with Real Madrid.
