Soccer – Rodgers issues Reds warning


Brendan Rodgers has warned all of his Liverpool players that they are playing for their futures, as their hopes of a top-four Premier League finish hang by a thread.

A 1-0 defeat at struggling Hull City left the Reds seven points adrift of the top four with just four games to play, with Liverpool having won only one of their last five league games and 25/1 with Bet365 to secure a top-four spot.
And Rodgers is under no illusions about the importance of the performances of his players in the closing matches of the campaign, with Spurs and Southampton also hot on their heels in the table.
He said after a disappointing display at the KC Stadium on Tuesday evening: “I spoke to the players at the end and I told them that we have an obligation to fight right to the end of the season.
“It’s fair to say every single player here is playing for his future.”
