Steven Gerrard fires digs at Manchester United

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard branded Old Trafford as “relatively quiet” after his Aston Villa side fell 1-0 to Manchester United on Monday night.

The ex-Reds captain was predictably the subject of cheers and chants from the home crowd as the Villa boss watched as his team narrowly missed a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Gerrard enjoyed taking on bitter Liverpool rivals as a player, his celebrations against United are still fondly remembered by supporters, and that same advantage was evident in the 41-year-old’s post-match comments.

“It was relatively quiet – I’ve been to noisier stadiums than this,” he said when asked about the United crowd during the game.

“It was a good cup game, a good atmosphere, but for what I got, water from the back of a duck.”
