Newcastle legend Supermac hoping Liverpool boss Rodgers gets behind Carroll

Newcastle United legend Malcolm Macdonald feels for Liverpool striker Andy Carroll.

Supermac is hoping Reds boss Brendan Rodgers gets behind the Geordie.

He told the Daily Star Sunday: "I worry for Andy. He's taken an awful lot of verbal knocks for some time - and I will hold my hands up at being part of it.

"So when he does something well he needs to be rewarded.

"Instead, he's dropped. And I'm not sure how Roy Hodgson handles that now. I know how I would have felt if I had been axed after scoring such a vital goal.

"It wasn't a tap-in but a towering header that I would have been proud to have scored. I would have been bloody angry to be left out of the next game."
