Police were called to the Lounge Inn in Southport, Merseyside after reports of a disturbance at 0230 GMT. Six men were detained later in a nearby street.  Another was taken to hospital with facial injuries, not thought to be life-threatening.

Four men aged 33, 31, 29 and 19, all from Huyton, a 28-year-old from Formby and an 18-year-old from Litherland were arrested a short time later on nearby Lord Street.  Gerard was among the six arrested.

Gerrard, 28, is Liverpool captain who scored twice to help his team to a 5-1 victory over Newcastle on Sunday.
