Liverpool boss Rodgers blasts back at Shearer over Allen criticism

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is unimpressed by Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer.

Shearer has been an out-spoken critic of midfielder Joe Allen, who cost £14million from Swansea in the summer.

Liverpool chief Rodgers, who has drawn comparisons between Allen and Spanish great Xavi, blasted: "I saw something criticising Joe for not playing risk passes.

"Unbelievable. Our so-called pundits who don't know the dynamics of a team and how it functions. Joe will prove an absolute bargain."
