Manager still keen to finish strongly.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has insisted that he has not lowered the club’s ambition by ruling them out of the title race as he is still looking to book a top four finish and return the club to the Champions League, Sky Sports reports.

The Reds are currently sat in fourth place in the Premier League table, eight points behind current leaders Arsenal, and the manager admitted earlier this week that it is too late to catch up and stake a claim for the top spot.
However, he has since returned to clarify those comments by claiming that the club are not happy with their current position as they look to secure a place in next season’s most elite club competition.
“Well it’s certainly the objective,” said Rodgers. “I think that the position we’ve been in for most of the season means that we’re fighting and we’re up there.
“I was asked a question yesterday in terms of the title and I gave an answer that I felt was an honest answer. It doesn’t mean that we’re any less ambitious.
“We want to finish as high as we possibly can, but certainly being in that top four is a key objective for us.”
Rodgers also admitted that he needs several more new faces to join his side if they are to maintain a strong challenge for honours again next year, though.
“I think we’ll need to strengthen the overall squad and looking to obviously introduce more quality, but it’s only natural,” he said.
“The players have been brilliant this season in terms of what they’ve produced, with what we have, and we just look to continue to develop the squad and I think when we do that then we can be there.”
