Kenny Dalglish will not rush Steven Gerrard back in response to Liverpool's humiliation at Tottenham.

The Reds skipper been sidelined with a groin injury since March but played in a practice match last week.

Dalglish reckoned Sunday's game at White Hart Lane was just too soon for the midfielder and the Anfield boss is yet to decide if he will feature in Wednesday's Carling Cup tie against Brighton.

'He's fine. We'll try to get over this before we start worrying about something else,' Dalglish said afterthe 4-0 hammering in north London.

'I've said all along, he's done fantastically well to get where he is. We'll just monitor him and pick the right moment for him and us before we get him back.

'Its natural everyone wants to chase for Stevie, especially after you have lost 4-0. But we'll monitor it, take it how it goes and when both parties agree he'll play.'

A double from Emmanuel Adebayor and goals from Luke Modric and Jermain Defoe made it two defeats on the spinfor Liverpool, who had Charlie Adam and Martin Skrtel sent off.
