A BUSINESSMAN suffered a barrage of blows at the hands of England star Steven Gerrard in a bar brawl, a court heard today. Marcus McGee, 34, said he felt threat- ened and vulnerable when the footballer asked him who the f**k he thought he was, after he refused to hand over the control for the music at the Lounge Inn in Southport, Merseyside, last December. Mr McGee suffered injuries including a head wound needing four stitches, a black eye and he lost a tooth crown in the alleged incident.
