Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has been ruled out of Tuesday's Champions League qualifier with CSKA Sofia at Anfield because of a calf injury but hasn't given up hope of returning for the Super Cup Final in Monaco on Friday.

Gerrard had a scan on Sunday morning which revealed a strain on his right calf and will be hoping the injury improves for him to captain Liverpool in the Super Cup Final against CSKA Moscow in Monaco on Friday.

Liverpool FC Head of Press Ian Cotton said: "Steven had a scan which showed a strain in his right calf. He will definitely miss Tuesday's game. Regarding his involvement in the Super Cup we will have a better idea later in the week."
