Football: Fact: Crouch can't hit a backside with a banjo!

Byline: By MIKE ALLEN

STEVEN GERRARD shows the crack in Liverpool's defence, but Peter Crouch still couldn't find it.

Liverpool's players teased England striker Crouch during training yesterday about his failure to hit the target for club or country this season. And in a twist to the old saying about cow's backsides and banjoes, Gerrard bared his behind on the goalline and offered Crouch the chance to aim a football at it.

In keeping with the rest of the season, the pounds 7million former Southampton striker missed, of course. Much to the amusement of team-mate Djibril Cisse.
