A 34-year-old man was taken to hospital with facial injuries after the alleged incident.
A statement released by the club read:
Steven has been an outstanding servant to Liverpool for the last 10 years and the club will give him all the support he needs at this time.
Meanwhile, the Football Assocation said it would not be making any comment on the Steven Gerrard case other than to stress that his position with England was not under question.
Gerrard, along with John Doran and Ian Smith, will appear at North Sefton Magistrates’ Court on 23 January, accused of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and affray.
Three other men have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
