English footballer Steven Gerrard has been arrested following an assault at a nightclub. 

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.

A police spokesman said: "Merseyside Police is investigating an assault that took place in the early hours of Monday December 29 on Bold Street in Southport.

"At around 2.30am this morning officers attended a disturbance at a licensed premises on Bold Street.

"Six men were arrested on suspicion of section 20 assault, on Lord Street."

The spokesman added all six currently remained in custody. It is believed no other Liverpool footballers are among those being held.

Gerard was still being questioned about the incident Monday and the Lounge Inn remained closed.

Liverpool was listed with 5/2 odds of winning the 2009 English Premiership outright at Sportingbet.com
