Gerrard, who is currently sidelined through injury, took to the commentary box for the clash against the Turks, and gave his forthright views on the incident after the final whistle.
“It’s not nice to see when players are taking the ball off each other,” Gerrard said.
“Jordan Henderson should have taken that penalty. I think Mario is being a bit mischievious by stepping in front of him and going against what the manager’s planned.
“Credit to him he’s finished the penalty off but it would have been very interesting if he’d missed it. I think we’d have had a similar situation to what we saw at Everton a few weeks ago.
“For me rules are rules and codes are codes inside the dressing room and when a manager selects a penalty taker that person should take it.”
