Steven Gerrard’s slip on the halfway line proved to be costly as Chelsea’s Demba Ba ran with the ball and put it in the back of the net thus depriving the Anfield outfit of their first ever Premier League trophy.
And now the current Rangers FC boss has revealed(for his biopic) that he was not actually supposed to that crucial game.
Dominic King wrote: “For instance, one previously untold story is about Liverpool’s title-decider with Chelsea in April 2014 — the match in which Gerrard’s fateful slip enabled Demba Ba to score.
“Gerrard needed an epidural injection to manage the pain from a back problem. By rights, he could have missed the game.”

Steven Gerrard though has refused to make the back pain an excuse for the slip.
“Don’t think that is an excuse. What happened was just pure bad luck but, when you do a book or film, especially with people who have won Oscars and made films such as Amy (the biopic of the late Amy Winehouse) and Senna, you must be as honest and open as you can.” Steven Gerrard said.
The Liverpool legend is currently managing Scottish Premiership side Rangers FC but even in Scotland, the England legend has been mocked about that costly slip.
