Gerrard: We didn't deserve to go through

A brutally honest captain Steven Gerrard admitted Liverpool could have no complaints over their Champions League elimination.

The Reds crashed out of the competition as they could only manage a 1-1 draw at home to Basle in their final Group B clash.

Gerrard's late free-kick had given the 10-man Reds hope, cancelling out Fabian Frei's opener, but, without the red-carded Lazar Markovic from just after the hour mark, they could not find a winner.

Arsene Wenger had come in for abuse from the London club's own supporters in the aftermath of Saturday's disappointing 3-2 defeat at Stoke, which left them sixth in the Barclays Premier League.
