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.”
