Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has accused his players of ignoring his instructions after their thrashing at Liverpool.

"When your players don't even try to implement the game-plan, that makes me angry," snapped Allardyce.

"We've got Stoke next week and I will make sure the players stick to the game-plan this time. They need to listen - that's all they need to do. That's what they are paid to do.

"None of those guys are ever going to be as good as I am at what I do because they are only players and I am the manager, so make sure you listen to me."
