The businessman allegedly attacked by Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard in a bar room brawl told a court on Wednesday he faced a "barrage" of blows from the player when he refused to hand over control of a CD player.

Marcus McGee, 34, lost a front tooth crown in the attack in the early hours of December 29 last year, Liverpool Crown Court heard.

McGee, who was initially attacked by one of Gerrard's friends, said he thought the 29-year-old England midfielder struck the first blow, the Press Association reported.

"I remember a barrage of punches coming in at my face but I didn't know who has done what," he said.
