(REUTERS) - Steven Gerrard says the slip that arguably ended Liverpool's title hopes and England being knocked out of the football World Cup in the group stage have contributed to what has been "probably the worst three months of my life".

Speaking to reporters on Liverpool's pre-season tour of North America, the 34-year-old addressed the moment when he lost his footing against Chelsea in late April, allowing Demba Ba to open the scoring.

The Blues went on to win 2-0, a result that effectively ended Liverpool's push for a first title since 1990 as well as Gerrard's hopes of a Premier League crown, the only club trophy that eludes him.

"Where do I rank it? It's probably the worst three months of my life. There is nothing else to say really is there," ge told reporters in New Jersey.
