Liverpool fans have turned their anger on manager Brendan Rodgers after the Reds lost 2-1 to Aston Villa in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

The supporters have pointed out that picking captain Steven Gerrard to play in the encounter may have been based on sentimentality. It is the 34-year-old’s final season at the club, but the team has been playing better without him in recent weeks.

As always when the Northern Irishman comes under pressure his transfer history has been questioned. Arguably only Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge have been proven successes at the club after being signed by Rodgers.

Were the Reds to fail to qualify for the Champions League the pressure will only heighten on the 42-year-old. As they are currently six points behind fourth placed Manchester City there is a genuine chance that this could happen. Liverpool have played a game less though so could still make up the gap.

Fans aren’t happy with him on Twitter…
