Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has brought in three legends to work with his youngsters.

Rodgers has called upon Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and Rob Jones to return to the club on a part-time basis to provide specialist coaching sessions for the under-21 and under-18 sides.

Rodgers is keen to utilise their know-how and feels the youngsters at the Kirkby academy will benefit from the experience of working with the former-Kop favourites.

"It's great to have Robbie, Steve and Rob on board," Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.

"I said at the end of last season that I wanted to get more former players involved and over the off-season I spoke to a number of them about a possible role here."
