VIDEO: Steven Gerrard is a dirty diver (Blackburn-Liverpool)

Sorry Liverpool fans, but your captain Steven Gerrard was guilty of trying to con referee Martin Atkinson during the Merseysiders poor goalless draw at Blackburn on Saturday.

The incident occurred during the second half of the match at Ewood Park. Lucas Leiva worked wonders down the left hand side in skinning Rovers full-back Pascal Chimbonda on the touchline and cutting a dangerous ball back into the hosts’ box.

After a deflection, the ball eventually fell at the feet of Red’s captain Stevie G inside the penalty only for the Liverpool legend to fall flat on his face under a “challenge” from Steven N’Zonzi.

It was a dive. It was blatant. And Gerrard should have been booked.
