Rodgers was sacked over the phone an hour after the team’s derby draw at Goodison Park.
Brendan Rodgers – who is looking at receiving a payout in the region of £7 million said in his last televised interview as manager “when the time comes for me not to be here, I’ll accept that, and I will move on because it’s an incredible club and it’s a real wonderful football club to work for.
“But I hope to be here for a little longer yet.”

In a statement released last night Fenway Sports owner John W Henry, president Mike Gordon and chairman Tom Werner said “The search for a new manager is underway and we hope to make an appointment in a decisive and timely manner.”
As there are no plans for the interim manager to step up it is expected that an announcement will be made in time for Liverpool’s match against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on October 17th.
Calls have been made for the new manager to offer positions to Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, stating there has been a lack of local wisdom since Gerrard’s emotional departure in the summer.
