Gerrard: Reason Behind My 38 Second Red Card

Liverpool legend Steven Gerard has revealed that frustration at Brendan Rodgers' team selection led to his 38 second red card against Manchester United last season.

Gerrard Accused Of Being 'Racist'

The former England captain was left frustrated and annoyed, as he was forced to start his last derby against the Red Devils on the bench.

Gerrard admitted that the occasion and the decision for him to be benched for such a big game got to him in the end.

"The emotions got the better of me on the day, I was just full of anger,” Gerrard told BT Sport.

"Very disappointed in Brendan's team selection, but instead of being professional and parking it up and thinking about the team, I was very selfish in my performance and in my actions.

"That's the reason why I came out and apologised straight away.

"I wasn’t proud of that performance at all, and I think looking back now, that summed up to everyone how hurt I was to be left out of the starting line-up that day."

Benitez Hits Back At Gerrard's Criticism

The 35-year-old midfielder made 689 appearances for the Reds and managed to score 180 goals and only received four red cards in his career.
