Rangers manager and Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard admits he is waiting anxiously to see if Manchester City have their 2014 Premier League title stripped.
The Premier League are yet to hand down any punishment to the Sky Blues who were banned from European club competitions for two years after being found to have breached financial fair play rules.
It’s thought it could be possible for City to be docked points from the current and previous season, meaning previous titles could theoretically be handed to other teams.
Gerrard, who never won a Premier League winners medal, was part of the Liverpool side which came second in 2014 when the midfielder infamously slipped against Chelsea.
But having heard about the drastic actions which could come against City, the Rangers boss couldn’t help but admit that he was waiting to hear the outcome.
“I read that myself this morning,” Gerrard said. “We will wait and see.
“From a UEFA point of view, it is a real strong sentence or punishment.
“I’m sure they will appeal so we will wait and see what the outcome is on that. Then we will see whether the Premier League act from there.
“I will give you a comment once I know that the Premier League decide to do. But if you look at the severity of the punishment from UEFA, something has gone badly wrong.
“I’m really interested to see the outcome of that. Until I get the punishment from the Premier League, I won’t comment. But I’m really, really interested in it… for obvious reasons.’
“It’s all ifs and buts. It is what it is. Manchester City were champions. As I sit here right now, congratulations to them. They are champions.

“Until things develop, if they develop, it’s all ifs and buts. I’ve got nothing to say on the matter.
“All I say is I’m very interested because of the severity of what UEFA have put out there.
“That tells me that something has gone badly wrong. We will see how that progresses.”
