MOST COMMENTED

Steven Gerrard says he is “devastated” to have missed out on the Premier League title this year, but Liverpool’s strong campaign has led him to believe that the club can win the title before he retires. The Liverpool captain delivered a pair of assists on Sunday as the Reds beat Newcastle United 2-1 at Anfield and finished the season just two points behind champion Manchester City in the league standings.

"I'm devastated," the World Cup-bound England international told Liverpool TV"To come so close and to fall away so late is difficult to take. There's mixed emotions at the moment because it hurt so much not delivering the title for this support. It's took me until I'm 33 to get this experience of a proper title race and what this is going to do for this young squad is it's going to take them to the title, whether it's this year or the year after, it will happen pretty soon, that's what I believe.”

He added: "I thought my days of title races were over. I have to honestly admit that, but having played with this group, it's back, the dream's back. Although I've only got a couple of years left maybe I still believe I can get there. I never give up fighting but I thought I'd never be able to say it, I'm really confident that the title is not too far away."
