Liverpool’s Rodgers will go if owners want him to….


Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers accepted his future at the club is in doubt after Steven Gerrard’s final match ended in a humiliating defeat. The Reds said goodbye to captain Gerrard with a 6-1 thrashing at Stoke to finish sixth in the Premier League. “I’ve always said if the owners want me to go, then I go,” said Rodgers, who has won two of his last nine games. “For everybody connected with Liverpool, we are all embarrassed by that result.” It was the first time in 52 years the Reds had let in six goals in the league but Rodgers, 42, insisted he still has “a lot to offer the club”, despite winning no silverware during his three years in charge. Liverpool must also now go through two qualifying rounds if they are to compete in the group stage of next season’s Europa League. “A lot has happened this year which has made the job difficult,” added Rodgers, who guided the Reds to second place last season. “Last season, when things were working well, we had the support of everyone but performances like today do not help that and I fully understand that. “The fans deserve an apology. They were angry at half-time – and rightly so – because that was awful, absolutely awful. “They have every right to be angry and frustrated and of course I take full responsibility for that as the manager.”
