We won't 'do a Neville', insists Anfield star

Fernando Morientes insists Liverpool players would never taunt Manchester United supporters after a goal in the way Gary Neville did last month.

Neville could face a punishment from the Football Association for his over-zealous celebration towards the Liverpool fans after Rio Ferdinand's injury-time winner in the league fixture between the sides at Old Trafford last month.
But Spain international Morientes said Liverpool players would not engage in similar antics should they find themselves in similar circumstances at Anfield on Saturday.
'I firmly believe no-one on the Liverpool team would have celebrated like Neville did,' he told The Sun.
'If I score on Saturday, or any of the other Liverpool players score, we won't run to the United fans. For certain we will celebrate with our own supporters.
'Neville's goal celebration caused a lot of controversy last time. But the match was very tense and there was a great deal of nerves at that moment.'
• Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez was today pondering whether to recall Jose Reina in goal for the FA Cup fifth-round home tie with Manchester United or keep faith with Jerzy Dudek, who has managed two clean sheets in the three matches the Spaniard has missed through suspension.
Benitez will also want to assess Peter Crouch's fitness after the £7million striker missed the last two games with a heel injury.
Robbie Fowler is cup-tied having played and scored in the tournament for Manchester City this term, which leaves Benitez with further decisions to make up front. Luis Garcia and Djibril Cisse are challenging for places in the starting line-up.
There are fitness doubts over defender Daniel Agger, who limped out of Thursday's reserve derby win over Everton, Stephen Warnock (groin) and Jan Kromkamp (ankle).
