Former Rangers star El Hadji Diouf has reignited his feud with Gers boss Steven Gerrard, mocking the former England international for not winning anything for his country.

Gerrard and Diouf have had a lengthy dislike of each other and the Senegalese has taken yet another pop at his former Liverpool team-mate.

Diouf openly admits to not liking Gerrard and took aim at the former midfielder for his failures as part of England’s so-called ‘Golden Generation’.

“When people say I don’t like Gerrard, I laugh, because if I tell you the things he used to say about me to the guys, you wouldn’t be able to write it,” Diouf told FourFourTwo, as quoted by the Evening Times.

For me, it’s all in the past, but I’m not a hypocrite – I know they don’t like me, so I also don’t like them.


“Look, I say this and they get offended but let’s be honest: Gerrard has won nothing for his country.”

It seems unlikely that Gerrard will respond to Diouf and the former Rangers loanees comments appear to have come from nowhere.

While he won many fans during his time at Rangers, taking shots at Gerrard isn’t going to endear Diouf to many on the blue side of Scottish football.

There’s no doubt that Gerrard probably should have won something during his international career but when you look at what he did at club level, then it doesn’t really make as much of an impact.
