Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says that his £96,000 donation to the Hillsborough Family Support Group was the least he could do.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has spoken about the "togetherness" of the city after donating £90,000 to the Hillsborough Family Support Group.

The skipper made the charitable gesture on Monday night and said that it was "the least" that he could do to help the campaign.

"It was something I wanted to do behind the scenes because I've got my own connection [to Hillsborough] through my own family," Gerrard told BT Sport.

"The people in this city have always supported me and it was the least I could do. Of course [Everton fans have been supportive]. When there's a tragedy in this city, there's a big togetherness.

"I want to say a big 'thank you' to all the Everton fans who have supported this campaign."
