Steven Gerrard slapped down Sky Sports’ Luke Shanley with a ripping riposte today as the reporter plumbed new depths of daftness with some really silly questions.
Asking the manager about Man Utd Liverpool, Shanley asked a really bumbling line of questions and Gerrard was (and wasn’t) amused by the idiocy of the posers.
Here’s how it went:
LS: “I appreciate you’ve got a big game on Sunday, there’s a big one after the game at Tynecastle finishes, is this the best time for Liverpool to be going to Old Trafford?”
LS: “How do you think it’ll go?”
SG: “Liverpool win.”
LS: “Why are you so confident?”
SG: (visible sigh and head turn with rolleye) “Are you going to continue to ask me these silly questions?!”
We really do wonder what qualifications it takes to become a reporter these days…
