Rangers boss Gerrard: Liverpool invited me to trophy lift

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has revealed he was invited to Liverpool's Premier League trophy lift.

Gerrard says he was invited to Liverpool's Premier League trophy lift but decided to stay home and watch it with his family.

He said, "I was at home watching it on TV. I was invited to go and be around the the players, be with them, but I thought the right thing to do was be at home with my family, and let the players celebrate and enjoy themselves.

"The scenes were absolute fantastic. There was no happier house in Formby than my house, let me tell you. I was onboard and all in with Jurgen from day one – from the start he made everyone believe they were about to go on a special journey.

"So I was immensely proud when I saw him deliver the title – and there was relief, from waiting so long as a fan and as a player. To watch what it meant for all those players and all the people around them was special."
