Video: Steven Gerrard’s dig at Chelsea fans despite ovation

Steven Gerrard said he was more concerned with his standing ovation from Liverpool fans than Chelsea fans’ brief moment of respect during the Reds’ 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Gerrard scored Liverpool’s equaliser shortly before half-time after John Terry had given the home side an early lead. The result means the Reds are effectively out of the running for a top four finish this season.

With the 34-year-old just two games from the end of his Liverpool career, he was afforded a standing ovation from both sets of supporters as he was substituted off in the 79th minute.

He told Sky Sports shortly after full-time, “The Chelsea fans showed respect for a couple of seconds, but slaughtered me all game. It’s nice of them to turn up for once today.”
