Liverpool boss Rodgers congratulates Oldham

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says Oldham Athletic deserved their FA Cup shock.

Despite his disappointment, Rodgers was keen to congratulate Oldham on their progress into round five, where they'll meet Everton at Boundary Park.

He said: "I thought they did well. If they fight like that, they shouldn't be down where they are in the league.

"Congratulations to Oldham - you cannot take it away from them, as bitterly disappointed as we are. It's a club that has been going through a tough time and a result like that could give them the lift to push on."
