Liverpool boss Rodgers stands by hooked Aspas

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is standing by goal-shy striker Iago Aspas.

The former Celta Vigo star was hooked at halftime in defeat to Southampton.

Rodgers said: "It was difficult for him to get in the game. We flipped it about a bit in the first half in triangles to try and get him on the ball a bit more. He'll continue to work hard.

"Iago is a good boy, and honest boy and he's obviously been thrown in a bit quicker than he's had to have been.

"But he's a good guy, he's working hard and trying his best so hopefully over time he'll get his goals and make the impact we think he can."
