Frank Lampard’s side went on to win 2-1, sending the Liverpool players into meltdown as they celebrated the first league title the club had won in 30 years.
Their former skipper Gerrard, who won the Champions League with the club in 2005, has since mentioned why he rejected the chance to attend the event in question, choosing to stay with his family.
While recording a Channel Four documentary following the success of Jurgen Klopp, he said of the evening: "I was at home watching it on TV.
“I was invited to go and be around the players, be with them. but I thought the right thing to do was be at home with my family, and let the players celebrate and enjoy themselves.
"The scenes were absolutely fantastic. There was no happier house in Formby than my house let me tell you.
"I was on board and all in with Jurgen from day one - from the start he made everyone believe they were about to go on a special journey.
"So I was immensely proud when I saw him deliver the title - and there was relief, from waiting so long as a fan and as a player. To watch what it meant for all those players and all the people around them was special."
The film is being produced by German brewing company Erdinger Weissbrau, and when asked about how highly he rated Klopp, Gerrard mentioned some famous names from the past.

Gerrard said: "The institution of Liverpool is almost like a religion - people who take the baton off each other to continue the Liverpool way, going back to Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan.
"And Jurgen has come and taken all that pressure on his shoulders of one of the biggest clubs in the world, played phenomenal, ferocious football, and won trophies. He came with his shoulders back, believing he would deliver success.
"So he’s right up there with the best Liverpool managers, and the best managers in the world. Fact."
