The 30-year-old was substituted immediately after the incident in the first half and there had been some worries that he had been seriously hurt. However, his Northern Irish manager has made it clear that he is absolutely fine. Although there are no guarantees that the centre-back will be able to play in their next fixture.

Rodgers said: “Martin Skrtel is fine. He could have played on but you have to listen to the medical team and the experts and he is fine in the changing room. He fell heavily so there was a feeling he could have been knocked out or concussed but I’ll leave that to the medical experts. Our objective this week was to get four points out of six in the league and get into the next round of the FA Cup.

“We got six points out of six and although we are not through to the next round, we are still in the draw.”

The Reds drew with Rovers in the FA Cup quarter final, failing to break down the Championship side’s stubborn defence. It will be tough for them at Ewood Park in the replay.
