Steven Gerrard has revealed his delight at Liverpool’s League Cup win over Middlesbrough on Tuesday night.

Brendan Rodgers’ side triumphed 14-13 in a dramatic penalty shootout at Anfield after the third-round clash finished 2-2.

Debutant midfielder Jordan Rossiter was among the young Reds players to be given a chance to feature by Rodgers during the clash – and the 17-year-old scored the opener on Merseyside.

And captain Gerrard, who was rested for the game, took to Instagram on Wednesday morning to reveal his pride at seeing some of Liverpool’s younger players star.

Gerrard posted the picture of Rossiter above on Instagram and wrote: “Great to see the young lads doing well last night #academy.”

Liverpool take on Everton at Anfield in the Merseyside derby in the Premier League on Saturday.
