Gerrard back, Adam out for season

Steven Gerrard will be back for Liverpool for this weekend's trip to Norwich, providing a lift for the Reds little more than a week before the FA Cup final with Chelsea.

Gerrard sparked fears over his fitness when he missed the recent 1-0 home defeat against West Brom. After the match Kenny Dalglish was elusive over his skipper's absence, merely uttering the word "precautionary".

However, the words of Liverpool's manager have been proved accurate as the Anfield talisman returns to the squad at Carrow Road, where Dalglish will want a confidence-boosting victory ahead of their trip to Wembley.

"He's fine, no problem," Dalglish said of Gerrard on Thursday. "We said it was just a precaution so he's back training. He's been training all week, so there's no other problems."

Liverpool have one more game to negotiate after Norwich prior to the FA Cup final, but midfielder Charlie Adam will play no part after being ruled out for the rest of the season.

''There is no operation needed but he won't play this season,'' said Dalglish. ''And I would think if they had any designs on having him in the Olympics he wouldn't be fit for that either.''

Adam's absence had been expected after he damaged a knee at QPR, but Dalglish had not confirmed the end of the Scotland international's campaign until Thursday's media call.
