Finally, Brendan Rodgers Gets the Sack

Finally! Liverpool’s American owners Fenway Sports Group sacked non-performing manager Brendan Rodgers (left) on Sunday following disappointing results that allowed Liverpool to sink deeper into wretched embarrassment.
 
Three and a half years in charge is more than what Liverpool fans can stomach!
 
I cackled with considerable amusement when I read that Rodgers took us to the brink of the EPL title in 2014! This is bullshit!
 
Liverpool were successful (or rather, nearly successful) only because we had the talented trio of Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard. He lost Suarez and he made Gerrard leave and with Sturridge out of action for some time – Liverpool became both hapless and helpless!
 
We finished sixth last season and today, we are currently tenth in the table with a meager twelve points from eight games. I am ashamed!
 
Rodgers had a Sunday game that like all his other games he managed, is best forgotten. In the Merseyside derby, Reds had spectacularly shown how below-average they have become.
 
Forward Danny Ings headed in a James Milner cross from close range in the forty-first minute and then a poor clearance from Emre Can hit fellow Reds defender Martin Skrtel before falling for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku to drive in a shot for the equalizer four minutes later. Both teams settled for a point apiece.
 
North of the border, Celtic inflicted a 2-1 defeat on Hamilton to reduce Aberdeen's lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to just one point.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Gramoz Kurtaj's drive put Accies in front after four minutes but Celtic refused to surrender. Leigh Griffiths's free-kick from the right was prodded over the line by center-half Dedryck Boyata in the twenty-sixth minute. And then, Griffiths sent a looping header past goalkeeper Michael McGovern five minutes later.
 
At least, Celtic know how to stage a fight back. And win the game.
