Steven Gerrard wears an old FA Cup Final suit to court

Liverpool captain, Steven “Stevie G” Gerrard, attended court today to face a charge of ‘causing affray’ in a Southport nightclub in December of last year.

The scouse superstar is accused of starting a nightclub brawl that resulted in the injury of Southport man in the early hours of 29 December.

Businessman McGee suffered multiple injuries, including a head wound, a black eye, and a lost tooth during the scuffle believed to have been caused when Gerrard was asked to pass him his beer, a request which Gerrard carried out in his usual manner of passing it at high velocity and then blaming McGee when he failed to control the fast moving glass projectile.

Gerrard, 29, a father of two, was out with friends at The Lounge Inn wine bar in Southport, celebrating Liverpool’s 5-1 defeat of Newcastle United last season, when the fight broke out.

Six other defendants all players for non-league Accrington Stanley are all also facing the same charges of affray.

The melee was believed to have been exacerbated when Gerrard was introduced to the Stanley players and mockingly pronounced in a broad Liverpudlian accent “Accrington Stanley, who are dey?” before ordering them a round of milk.

The bar owner, who wished to remain unnamed, told police at the time, “Gerrard was unstoppable, despite being outnumbered he really gave 120% and displayed the fighting spirit from that epic Champions League Final comeback in Istanbul. It was an awesome display of manic, hyperactive energy and uncontrolled fury, exactly what he brings to Premier League matches.”

The trial is scheduled to last two weeks giving newspapers plenty of scope to fill their pages if they tire of making up outlandish transfer rumours.
