Former Liverpool star Steve Nicol says Brendan Rodgers’ job is in danger, after overseeing the Reds disastrous Champions League campaign.

The Reds finished third in Group B, with just five points from six matches and only one victory.

And with Liverpool sitting 9th in the Premier League table, Nicol admitted the Reds may be forced to look at alternative options if their form does not improve.

“If things don’t change then ultimately Brendan will pay the price,” Nicol, who won five league championships and a European Cup during his long career at Liverpool, told talkSPORT.

“If this team keeps performing the way it is, I don’t think they will have any other option [but to sack Rodgers].

“We are not even halfway through the season yet and I’m guessing most people don’t expect Liverpool to get into the top four.”

    Rogers may be a good coach, but wit very very poor signing of players, He equally failed as required good striker [boroni,lambert,balloteli all failed to influence a match, Bengovic was D ideal keeper for LFC he equally fail to sign Him. Then where is D result for D money spent. Champions league out,domestic league no where to be found. 70% of matches played no single shot at goal. Conclusion Rogers has failed LFC.

    Rodgers statement that he is more determined to turn things around is laughable. Liverpool are out of the Champions League, Rodgers reason for spending so much on new players. They are already way out of contention with the top of the league. The performances on the whole are poor and disjointed with the team having no real direction. When you have a team looking toward a 19 year old for a spark and goals and you have him leading the line because you have no one else capable, no disrespect to Sterling, you have a problem. Some of his new additions are certainly questionable. My question is more of why did you buy so many players? You did not need that many. 60% of what was bought was actually more accurate. Rodgers seemed more intent on buying players for the midfield instead of 1 goalkeeper, 2 or 3 defenders, 1 attacker and 1 midfielder I have said it before, Balotelli was nothing more than a “panic buy” because they could not attract someone better. Why they could not, baffles me. If you can not attract a good quality player after finishing second, you really have a problem. What concerns me more than anything, is Rodgers does not seem to have any real ideas for how to fix the mess he has created except for throwing more money at it. That is not the answer! I do not know how long FSG are prepared to wait before they act. I just hope that it is not too long!
