Liverpool boss Rodgers fined £8k by FA, but just wants to focus on football

Brendan Rodgers has insisted that he has no regrets over comments made about referee Lee Mason, but does not want the headlines to distract his players from their duty on the field, according to Sky Sports.

Rodgers had questioned Mason’s integrity after the referee officiated the Reds’ loss to Man City on Boxing Day, and the Liverpool boss accepted an FA charge for the incident. He has since been fined £8k for his comments, but Rodgers remains defiant in his stance.


Despite accepting the charge, Rodgers claims that he did not intend to question Mason’s integrity, but admits his disappointment with the result. The former Swansea boss said: “My view hasn't changed. I obviously accept the punishment but I'm not one who is the enemy to the officials.


“My history will show that, I have always supported and encouraged them. I was disappointed after the game, disappointed with the outcome (the fine) considering my history but all I was doing was speaking honestly and in no way was I questioning the integrity of the referee.


"But it is gone. The only reason I never challenged it was because I didn't want anything getting in the way of what we are trying to do here.


"It would just prolong it and be something else to talk about when all I want is for us to talk about is our football."


Rodgers’ attention now turns to the trip to Stoke on Sunday, and with consecutive 2-0 wins in league and cup the form would seem to favour the Merseysiders.
