Steven Gerrard lashes out at Portsmouth’s Michael Brown during Liverpool’s 4-1 Premier League win last night. The referee failed to spot the incident so the Football Association (FA) can deal with it under their video review regulations.
Under the FA’s fast-track procedure Gerrard faces a three match ban, beginning with this weekend’s trip to Old Trafford. Will the FA act against Gerrard, who escape without punishment after offering a referee a two fingered salute recently? Rio Ferdinand might have an opinion on that.
