Liverpool skipper Gerrard: Forget Whelan, Rodgers always No1

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard insists Brendan Rodgers was always the club's No1 choice as manager.

Gerrard insists Brendan Rodgers was Liverpool's first choice as manager, despite Wigan chairman Dave Whelan claiming that it was Roberto Martinez.

"I can go on record and guarantee he was first choice," said Gerrard.

"I've been kept in the loop all along by the board and the owners... so take no notice of Dave Whelan.

"Hopefully he can progress the team and stay for a long time."
