Anfield legend may miss the rest of the season id scans prove the worst.
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is desperate to learn the full extent of captain’s Steven Gerard’s recurrence of his groin injury.
The 30-year-old underwent surgery for the problem in March but was back in training last week ahead of schedule.
The England international hoped to play in the 2-1 defeat at West Bromwich Albion but was injured in training on Friday.
Dalglish is awaiting the scan results and is fearful of losing his skipper for the entire run-in.
“Steven was training (on Friday) and innocuously tried to turn with the ball and felt a sharp pain,” said Dalglish.
“Same injury but not the same thing.
“We’ll get him assessed and by the end of the week we’ll know better about everybody.
“It’s disappointing for Steven because he was training really well and looking forward to being back in among the lads.”
Defenders Glen Johnson and Daniel Agger picked up injuries in the early stages of the West Brom defeat to leave Dalglish bemoaning the loss of three players.
“To lose three players in April would be a blow for anybody,” he added.
