Daniel Sturridge has declared that he is devastated by Liverpool’s Champions League exit on Tuesday.

Needing three points to secure their place in the knockout stage, Liverpool fell behind in the 25th minute after Fabian Frei’s brilliant long-range effort silenced Anfield.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers introduced Lazar Markovic in search of an equaliser at half-time but the Serbian was sent off after he appeared to catch Behrang Safari in the face.

The Reds captain offered late hope with a stunning free-kick at Anfield but Liverpool couldn’t conjure a winner which would have secured their progression to the last 16.

Sturridge, who hasn’t featured in the Champions League this season after a string of injuries, was bitterly disappointed at his inability to help his team-mates.

Rodgers’s side make the daunting trip to bitter rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
