Rodgers: I praised Reina in front of Liverpool squad

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits he praised Pepe Reina in front of his squad after victory at Wigan Athletic.

The goalkeeper was outstanding at the DW.

"I said to the players afterwards that was an outstanding performance from Pepe," said the manager to liverpoolfc.com.

"He made big saves at critical moments. Sometimes goals, especially away from home, can change the momentum of games, but Pepe was focused throughout.

"His pass for the first goal to Philippe Coutinho opened up the pitch really well.

"He was deserving of his clean sheet - our 11th in the league this season."
