Liverpool star Gerrard desperate for Rio return: You can have England captaincy!

Liverpool ace Steven Gerrard is keen for Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand to return to full fitness - and take the England captaincy away from him.

Yesterday he had to handle questions about his England team-mate Wayne Rooney's alleged off-field antics.

"Rio's nearly back though, isn't he?" said Gerrard. "This is the last time you'll see me here. Enjoy it while I'm here!

"But situations like Wayne's are private. I can't comment on what is going on in Wayne's mind. I don't know. You'd have to have Wayne here now."
