Liverpool U18 manager Steven Gerrard admits the quality he has to select from in the Reds' academy system makes it hard to keep everyone happy, ahead of their final UEFA Youth League game against Spartak Moscow on Wednesday.

Spartak Moscow's club doctor banned the squad from having sex in the buildup to tonight's Champions League clash at Liverpool.

Brewster, who helped England Under-17s win the World Cup in India earlier this season, had to be restrained by team-mates and Under-19s coach Steven Gerrard at the final whistle of the 2-0 Uefa Youth League victory over the Russian side.

As reported by James Pearce of the Echo, the striker told referee Mohammed Al-Hakim what he was called by a Spartak defender as the game drew to a close.

And speaking after the game, Gerrard said it was an issue the club would "look into", though he turned the focus on Brewster's strong performance. "It's something that the club will look into and deal with", the Reds idol said to reporters.

Nicholas' relics is now a crypt in Bari, Italy, with other bone fragments scattered elsewhere due to the saint's popularity. Professor Higham added: 'Science is not able to definitely prove that it is, it can only prove that it is not, however'.

Anfield officials will now make an official complaint to Uefa.

In September, Liverpool's Nigeria-born attacker Bobby Adekanye was subjected to racist chants and gestures from Spartak supporters in Moscow.

On that occasion, Spartak were punished with the forced closure of a small portion - around 500 seats - of their academy stadium for their next home UEFA Youth League match.

UEFA ordered a banner, emblazoned with their logo and '#EqualGame', to cover that area of the stand.
