Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says that youngster Martin Kelly will miss the rest of the campaign.

The 22-year old defender has been sidelined since September with knee ligament damage but will not feature again until the summer says his boss.

"Martin may well be back towards the beginning of May but that will be to join training. I'm not sure if he's going to be available to play this season," he told the club's official website.

"The feeling with him and (injured striker) Fabio (Borini) was that they would probably miss a big part of the season."
