Leicester boss Rodgers: I can't see Liverpool being awarded 2014 title

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers isn't expecting a Premier League winner's medal from Liverpool anytime soon.

After Manchester City were handed a two-year Champions League ban for 'serious breaches' of UEFA's FFP rules, there have been suggestions they could be stripped of their 2014 Premier League title.

That was the year they pipped Liverpool after Steve Gerrard's infamous slip against Chelsea. Rangers boss Gerrard says he will be 'really interested' to see what happens.

But ex-Reds manager Rodgers insists: “I can't see that, I'm not sure there's any history that shows that is there?

“I'm thinking of Juventus, they lost the title but the team who came second didn't get it.

“But if we did get it, the moment's gone now. It was an incredible moment."

He added: “I don't over think it to be honest, it's not going to change anything for me.

“I've got other things and that's gone.

“It's one where nothing changes in terms of my feeling of that season. We were up against a fantastic team in Manchester City and we just fell short. It doesn't take away from what we did that year.

“I'm not sure what can come from it."

Rodgers agreed it would be similar to an Olympic silver medallist later being awarded gold.

He said: “Absolutely, and that's where you want to be."
