Liverpool legend Rush praises Rodgers for swerving mind games

Liverpool legend Ian Rush has praised manager Brendan Rodgers for keeping his cool in the title race.

A bitter war of words has erupted between Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger and Manuel Pellegrini in recent weeks. In contrast Rodgers has refused to rise to the bait and Rush has been impressed by the Northern Irishman's approach.

"I like the fact that Brendan hasn't got involved in all the mind games," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"The message has been 'we'll just concentrate on ourselves, try to play our best and finish as high as possible'.

"People have been saying Liverpool are in the frame but we are doing our talking on the pitch.

"The pressure is on Chelsea and Man City as they are the favourites and we can continue to play with freedom."
