Football is a family affair between cousins Steven and Anthony Gerrard, and the former comforted the latter on his miss on the final spot kick before celebrating the Carling Cup victory with his teammates.
“It’s always cruel when it comes to penalties, but there has to be a loser. It was always going to be that one of us was sad and one celebrating. I’ve got mixed emotions. Obviously I’m delighted to win the cup for our supporters, but I feel for Anthony and Cardiff. It doesn’t matter what I say to him - he’s going to be down. I’ll be there for him and all the family will be behind him.”
