Liverpool boss Rodgers: So difficult leaving out Carragher

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits its difficult ignoring Jamie Carragher for Premier League selection.

Yet for all the disappointment he would inevitably feel about not featuring of a weekend, there has not been the slightest murmur of discontent from Carragher and his professionalism and attitude have left an indelible mark on Rodgers.

"Seeing him work so hard and not giving him a shirt is the hardest part of my job," Rodgers said. "Guys like that you want to put in the team when it matters.

"This (Europa League) game matters, but all players want to play in the Premier League and not picking him is the most difficult part of my job.

"He is an incredible character and it is easy to see why he has played over 700 games for Liverpool. He is 150 per cent commitment and works to a standstill every day."
