Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp says it would be ‘madness’ to sack Brendan Rodgers, following Liverpool’s disappointing start to the season.

The Northern Irishman is the bookies favourite to be the first manager to lose his job after overseeing Liverpool’s exit from the Champions League group stage whilst they sit mid table and out of the Premier League title race.

However former Reds star Redknapp has given his backing to the under fire manager.

He said: “A few months ago Brendan was manager of the year and now look at the pressure he is under.

“I don’t think they should change him. That would be madness. I like Brendan, I think he is good. But he has made mistakes this season and he is suffering for them

“It’s been humbling for him. He just needs to ride the storm but there will be no bigger test than this one here.”
