Darren's Anderton's superbly flighted cross into the danger area ricocheted off Simon into the path of Gus for the all-important goal, but Simon admits it wasn't a premeditated move and he won't be checking the Opta assists column.
"No," he laughed. "I don't know what happened, I went in there and it hit my knee and went straight to Gus. It was lucky for me and lucky for Gus."
Simon put on another stirring performance down the right in our final home game of the season and enjoyed considerable success against the normally miserly Liverpool left side.
"I enjoy getting at players and it's what the manager wants me to do while I'm out there so I try to be as positive as possible.
"Sometimes it doesn't come off, but lately it's been going quite well. I'm happy with the way it's going."
Possibly moving back into the middle of the park might just be a bit strange for Simon now, considering the success he's made of the wing-back role of late.
"I know," smiled Simon. "It'll be interesting to see what happens now and next season. It's the manager's decision, but I'm glad to have added another string to my bow and I can play out there when the manager needs me to or in the middle if he needs me to.
"It helps me more and I'm looking forward to it."
Simon Davies says he won't be claiming an 'assist' for his part in Gus Poyet's goal against Liverpool on Saturday.
