Liverpool skipper Gerrard: Europa League special trophy to win

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard insists the Europa League is a trophy well worth winning.

The exit from the Champions League has hurt Liverpool's reputation, but Gerrard insists lifting the Europa League trophy would go some way to making up for the setback.

He said: "This season has been inconsistent and hasn't gone to plan. But, for me as captain and for the team, we've got one more trophy to lift. So we'll be giving everything. Anyone who underestimates the Europa League is not for me because I've lifted the UEFA Cup before.

"It's a special trophy, and was a superb final. Hopefully we can experience the same feeling this season."
