Liverpool legend John Aldridge says Rafa Benitez was wrong with his rant against Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

"Benitez has done a 'Kevin Keegan' and it will be easy to say that he too has lost the plot if Liverpool don't go on to win the title," Aldridge told The Sunday World.

"He is feeling very confident at the moment but he has taken on a shrewd cookie in Ferguson.

"Indeed, Sir Alex must have had a great chuckle last night as Rafa's side dropped two points against lowly Stoke.

"My own feeling is that if Liverpool don't win the title now everyone will say Benitez cracked under the pressure and he is not up to the job."
