Gerrard declares himself 'really interested' in possible Premier League punishment for Man City

It was something that was only whispered about on social media on Friday night, but the ramifications for Man City in the Premier League have become very interesting.

No punishment, or conclusion, has been reached by the FA or the Premier League as yet, with many assuming that that will come later. No doubt, guided by the decision from UEFA.

But now that UEFA have themselves chosen to impose such strong terms on Man City, it appears almost inconceivable that the English authorities or Premier League could be any less harsh.

One thing for discussion though, is whether they'll have any retrospective punishment, along with points deductions, such as having previous Premier League titles taken off them.

This would open the door for the Reds' 2013-14 squad to potentially receive Premier League winners medals, should Man City have that title (with it falling during the 2012-16 period that they breached FFP) taken off them.

One of those players, of course, is Reds captain from that time Steven Gerrard. Who's only missing medal from his time as a Liverpool player was a league medal.

When asked about the situation today, Gerrard said: "Then we will see whether the Premier League act from there. But if you look at the severity of the punishment from UEFA, something has gone badly wrong.

"So I'm really interested to see the outcome of that. Until I get the punishment from the Premier League, I won't comment further. But I'm really, really interested in it...for obvious reasons.

"It's all ifs and buts. It is what it is. Manchester City were champions.

"As I sit here right now, congratulations to them. They are champions. Until things develop, if they develop, it's all ifs and buts.

"I've got nothing to say on the matter.

"All I say is I'm very interested because of the severity of what UEFA have put out there."
