    I've always thought Gerrard was a *, even before Rangers.

    Years ago, League One Crystal Palace beat Liverpool 2-1 in the first leg of a cup match, where 21-year-old Clinton Morrison scored the winning goal after Michael Owen missed a bunch of chances. Morrison was asked after the game whether he would have scored some of those Owen chances and he came out and said ‘Yeah, most definitely, I would have put the chances away, easily!’ Of course the media jumped on this and all the headlines were about Clinton giving Owen tips on how to score goals. Just a 21 year old being a bit cocky and running his mouth without thinking, not a big deal.

    But the way Gerrard recounts it in his book 15+ years later just highlights what a humourless, arrogant, bitter guy he is:

    'There was more London opposition in the semi-finals. Crystal Palace are a decent club , but back then they had a complete ***** of a centre forward. Clinton Morrison fancied himself so much he should have married a mirror. Before the game he gave it all the big **** in the papers about how good he was. Clinton is one of those players who gets a buzz off seeing himself in the press. If the bookies had offered a bet on Clinton Morrison talkinging himself up bfore our games, I would have had my mortgage on it.

    We arrived at Selhurst Park having heard and read about all theses things Clinton was going to do to us. Big scary Clinton. Hoping for an upset TV showed the 1st leg live. Liverpool were all over Palace. If this had been a boxing bout, the referee would have stopped it to prevent Palace suffering further. We pulverized them. Their goal led a charmed life. Michael (Owen) was so unlucky. He could easily have got a hat-trick, 7-2 wouldnt have flattered Liverpool, honestly. Unbelievably, Palace won 2-1.

    We were smarting at the injustice, desperate to get Palace back to Anfield to put them and Clinton in their proper place. I wished the 2nd leg had been the next night, waiting a fortnight for revenge felt far too long. Stupidly forgetting there was a 2nd leg, Clinton mouthed off again. How thinck was that? I couldnt believe what I was reading in the papers. None of the Liverpool players could. it did our heads in, those Morrison quotes like, "I would have scored the chances Owen had". Michal just laughed, Englands hero of St Etienne was not going to worry about the hollow jibes of some second string striker. "Whatever!" shrugged Michael, smiling. Clinton angered me more than he upset Michael. His comments showed a lack of respect. if you want a really sound laugh compare the respective goal scoring records of Michael Owen and Clinton Morrison. European footballer of the year v Mr Average. Clinton could talk for Ireland, but could he back his words with goals at Anfield? with everyones eyes on him? with an angry Kop slaughtering him? No ••••••• way.

    When we all walked into the Anfield dressing room, there on the wall were all Morrisons offending articles, like a list of crimes pinned up outside a court room, "Im going to score at Anfeidl in front of te Kop", says big Clint. Oh, yeah? There it was, in black and white, Clintons boast. Any time anyone dared criticize Liverpool, Phil Thompson would stick it up on the notice board. Bang. read that. Sort him out. Personally, i'm not a great fan of that. Cheap talk shouldnt stir big responses. No footballer needs extra motivation. I certainly dont. But seeing all those headlines on the Anfield dressing room wall, and knowing cocky Clinton was in the room down the corridor fired our players up that night.

    Poor Palace. We absolutely destroyed them. We were 3-0 up in twenty minutes, smashing them all over Anfield, and eventually won 5-0. Take that, Clinton. He got booed all game by Kopites at their merciless best. Clintom was trapped in a nightmare he'd scripted. At one point, he tried to do an overhead kick and almost broke his back. Liverpool fans ****ed themselves. By the final whistle, Clinton was like a little sheep walking off the pitch with his tail between his legs. Thats why you dont come out and say stupid things, Learn your lesson Clinton'

    He comes across as a right horrible *, players probably hated him , 1 trophy out of 9 because of a Lennon cluster * and hes a hun legend, Davidson won more trophies than him in his 3 year stint and they don’t go on about it as much

    It's almost like Gerrard isn't a good manager and was found out.
