Gary Anderson had to settle for second in the World Series of Darts final after losing 11-6 to Michael van Gerwen.

Anderson had started the evening with an 11-5 win over James Wade in the semi-final at the Braehead Arena.

However, world champion Van Gerwen took an early 3-1 lead in the final.

At 6-4 Anderson was still in touching distance, but that was as close as he would get with the Dutchman winning four straight legs.

It is a third successive title for Van Gerwen, who had defeated Anderson 7-3 at Alexandra Palace in the January's PDC World Championship final.
