Anfield manager left reeling by lack of activity.
Rodgered! Liverpool boss stunned as club chiefs fail to buy Dempsey
Brendan Rodgers was left reeling after Liverpool’s top target Clint Dempsey joined Spurs on deadline day.
The Reds boss cleared the decks at Anfield by offloading EIGHT players in the transfer window to keep his side of the bargain as the club looked to slash a bloated wage bill.

By all accounts Brendan Rodgers had allowed Andy Carroll to join West Ham on loan as he was under the impression that Liverpool would bring in a striker on deadline-day but that has not proven the case, leaving the Merseyside club desperately short of attacking options.
This is in marked contrast to the level of spending Kenny Dalglish reached during his time in charge and could well leave Liverpool struggling, especially if either Luis Suarez or Fabio Borini were to be ruled out with an injury or suspension.
Liverpool apparently made a ‘derisory’ offer for American Clint Dempsey who then swiftly left for Tottenham for a fee in the region of £6m. The Anfield side apparently also made a loan offer for Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge but the West London side were apparently only open for a permanent deal.
