Following his release from police custody last night, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard found himself in more hot water as he found himself going up the disciplinary route at work.
A disciplinary hearing was held this morning at Anfield, chaired by manager Raaffia Basket-Benitez.

'Effectively it means that if he drops one more bollock in the given time frame then he's out on his arse,' said a club insider. 'And a good thing too if you ask me. This club has an impeccable reputation and we won't stand for some jumped up ginger nut sullying its good name.'
Somewhat paradoxically, a spokesperson for Liverpool Football Club declared that the club would offer Gerrard 'total support'
