Football message boards are abuzz this Saturday that Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is about to be named and shame in a sex scandal involving a 16-year-old.
It must be stressed that these scandalous rumours are nothing more than fallacious lies at the minute, and unless some hard evidence is produced, there is nothing to suggest that there is any truth in the potentially character-assassinating story.
That said, Football.co.uk today published the details of the rumour on their website.
“There’s a rumour spreading like wildfire on the internet that Steven Gerrard is facing accusations he got a 16-year-old Liverpool girl pregnant. Fan site Redcafe.net report that the News of the World are planning to break the story on Sunday – while some sources are suggesting Gerrard has a court injunction to keep the girl quiet. There are also rumours circulating that Gerrard’s wife Alex Curran has been having an affair with a Derby County player.”
