Gerrard has talked about his team after victory against Dundee United.

Steven Gerrard

thinks that the referee made a right decision when he showed


a yellow card and says that he didn’t use his elbow.

“I didn’t see an elbow. If you look at him again, there’s no elbow there. The referee saw it and dealt with it.

“It was a foul and a yellow card and it’s been dealt with.

“But if you look at it again, next time I see you you’ll say it wasn’t an elbow.”

He also says that he doesn’t have a problem with Morelos’ goal scoring as he believes in the player.

“These things happen,” he said. “He’s not the first centre-forward that this has happened to. They have moments and phases where they are not in top form.

“He is working hard, he’s doing a job for the team. His all-round play is good, he’s just maybe lacking that wee bit of confidence in front of goal.

“That’s for me to deal with and it will turn. I’m sure it will turn. He’s just got to keep doing the right things and it will turn for him.”

Here is what




said about the game.

“I wouldn’t want the opposition manager standing here and talking about my players. Everyone will have their opinion at home but the referee makes the decisions.

“What’s important for us is Dundee United and being the best version of ourselves. The movement from Liam for the goal was great and something we’ve worked on.

“As gutted as we are, it’s a step in the right direction for the football club in terms of making it competitive against Rangers.”
