Redknapp: Liverpool pair Rodgers, Suarez deserve awards

Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp believes his old club deserves at least a double this season.

The Reds are at the top of the Premier League table thanks to the work done by manager Brendan Rodgers and the 29 goals scored by Luis Suarez which should land the pair the Manager of the Year and Player of the Year awards respectively.

In his column for the Daily Mail, Redknapp wrote that at least two prizes will land at Anfield this season and hopes the Merseyside club can make it three by taking out their first Premier League title.

"It's the time when people start talking about awards, but there is no question Liverpool should win the double," he opined.

"Luis Suarez has been magnificent and Brendan Rodgers is a class act.

"They are the player and manager of the year. Liverpool had success under Gerard Houllier and Rafa Benitez, but never played with the same style as Rodgers' side.

"Last year they were 28 points off the title and now they lead by two. That is an incredible turnaround. Glen Johnson said it would be good for neutrals if Liverpool won the title, but it would be great for English football full stop.

"They play such fantastic football with a British manager and Sunday had six Englishmen in their starting XI.

"Suarez and Rodgers should win the individual awards, but they will want to make it a magnificent treble with the title."
