Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard insists it is time for the Reds to deliver some silverware following a six-year trophy drought at Anfield.

The FA Cup victory of 2006, in which Gerrard famously played a pivotal role, was the last time the Reds won a major tournament.

They featured in the UEFA Champions League final the following year but lost to AC Milan.

Gerrard would like nothing more than for his first time of leading the side out at Wembley on Sunday in the Carling Cup final to end with a trophy.

"It is massive. Everyone at the club have done a fantastic job to get us to Wembley," he told LFC TV.

"Now we have to go do the difficult part and go beat Cardiff.

Too long

"It has been too long since we last got to a major final at Wembley (16 years) and to a major final domestically in 2006.

"It is time we delivered as players and put a cup in the cabinet."

Gerrard's cousin Anthony will be in opposition on Sunday but the Liverpool captain is determined to come out on top in the family battle.

"I hope it goes well for Anthony on the day but at the final whistle I hope he is disappointed," added the England midfielder.
