Ex-Liverpool star Danny Murphy has revealed he and Steven Gerrard shared a laugh over the Rangers boss' wild celebrations at Parkhead in December.

The Light Blues earned a brilliant win over rivals Celtic on December 29 and Gerrard enjoyed the victory with his players on the pitch at full-time. The boss allowed himself a moment to cheer into the Sky Sports cameras when his side narrowed the gap to two points with a game in hand.

Since that day things have crumbled for Gers who find themselves 12 points behind Celtic now, albeit still with the game in hand. But Murphy says he understood his old teammate's celebrations - even if they both acknowledged they might have been over the top.

On current poor form, Murphy told talkSPORT: "He will be bitterly disappointed after that win at Celtic Park, you seen the emotion on the touchline.

"Actually, we had a giggle about that. I said 'you got a bit carried away with yourself' and he made no apologies for it because he said it meant the world. It was such a big deal, it was one of his finest moments.

"I don't blame him for that, the emotion when you're there. He is very positive about where he has got to, but he certainly isn't content. He wants more."
