Liverpool 2 Newcastle 1 - player ratings: Who was best on Liverpool's final day?

All the Premier League final day player ratings from Anfield

Liverpool's title race challenge came to an end on the final day of the season despite coming from behind to beat Newcastle at Anfield.

The Reds may have won but Manchester City's victory over West Ham meant the title went to the Etihad.

So, in a valiant attempt from Brendan Rodgers' men, who was best?

Martin Skrtel scored a league record fourth own goal to put the home side on the back foot after just 20 minutes.

But, Steven Gerrard came to Liverpool's rescue with two superb deliveries for Daniel Agger and Daniel Sturridge to tap in and give them the win.

Shola Ameobi and Paul Dummett both received red cards in a poor end to a difficult season for Alan Pardew and Newcastle.
