Following the game Gerrard gave an impassioned interview to BT Sport amidst claims that Finnish midfielder Glen Kamara had been racially abused by one of the Slavia players.
"I 100 per cent believe what he is saying in terms of the accusation. Other players around him heard it so I will stand toe-to-toe with Glen Kamara and I'll deal with this however Glen wants to deal with it," the former Liverpool midfielder said.
"I am proud of all my players, tonight showing solidarity and from the top of this club to the bottom we stand with the players. This situation is over to UEFA now. I just hope it doesn't get brushed under the carpet."

Ondrej Kudela was the player accused of the racist remark and tensions on the pitch boiled over, with Gers' captain Connor Goldson arguing with the Slavia player.
Kamara was taken away from the situation by the players and Gerrard told Kudela to 'shush' from the sidelines, before a long conversation with Slavia management at full time.
Things didn't end there though, with the Czech side's president Jaroslav Tvrdik denying any racist abuse and taking to social media to claim that Kudela was physically attacked in the tunnel after full time.
"Slavia categorically denies the fact that the player Ondrej Kudela racially (sic) insulted the players' opponents in any way," Tvrdik said on Twitter.
"Our player was physically attacked after the match. At the request of Slavia, the case was resolved by the local police. We would like to see a detailed investigation of the whole situation by UEFA."
Slavia se kategoricky ohrazuje proti tomu, ze hrac Ondrej Kudela jakkoliv rasisticky urazil hrace soupere. Sokuje nas, ze po zapase doslo k fyzickemu napadeni naseho hrace. Na zadost Slavie pripad resi mistni policie. Prejeme si podrobne vysetrovani cele situace ze strany UEFA.- Jaroslav Tvrdik (@JaroslavTvrdik) March 18, 2021
On the pitch it was a nasty affair, as well as the alleged racism, there were also two red cards for Gerrard's men.
The first was for substitute Kemar Roofe, the forward was only on the pitch for six minutes when he tried to latch onto a loose ball in the box.
Much uglier scenes were still to come.
