Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers hailed matchwinner Jordan Henderson after victory at Europa League opponents Udinese.

Henderson's first European goal, and only third since his £16milllion summer 2011 transfer, put the Reds top of Group A.

"He is a great lad and works hard and has come in over the last month and made a good contribution to the team," said Rodgers of the midfielder, who has been a fringe player for most of the season.

"It was a very good finish and he was unfortunate not to get a second goal as the keeper made a wonderful save.

"He has that quality to arrive in the box and he has a finish in him so I am delighted for him and his hard work is paying off."
