Some of the key stories related to Liverpool Football Club this Monday morning.

Defender Kolo Toure has said sorry after his calamitous error cost Liverpool victory against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

Toure said he didn’t see Baggies striker Victor Anichebe as he played the ball into his path and allowed him to equalise for the home side.

Toure told the Liverpool Echo: ‘I made a very bad pass. I don’t know why I passed the ball into the middle of the pitch, it was crazy.

‘I’m disappointed for me and the team. It’s hard to take, especially for me, because we played well.

‘It’s difficult to say what we have been talking about in the dressing room but the manager knows how disappointed I am. My pass put the team in a difficult situation.’

Manager Brendan Rodgers said the club did everything they could to sign Yevhen Konoplyanka on transfer deadline day, and hinted that a deal still can be done for the player in the summer window.

He said after yesterday's match: 'I've heard the problem mentioned was about the money but that was not a problem. It just wasn't to be.

'I feel really sorry for the player because he was obviously desperate to come but it's gone now and we will review it in the summer.'

The Reds' boss also tried to take the positives out of the draw, saying that it could be a crucial point gained come the end of the season.

He said after the game: ‘It tells you everything about our expectancy now; we came here and lost, and lost at home to West Brom, last year. So to get four points out of six shows the improvement.

‘For us to be disappointed with a point away from home in the Barclays Premier League shows the growth of the team. We’ve done brilliantly up until this point.

‘We’ve got 14 games to go and we’re still in a great position, with big games to play, and the squad is very focused on our objectives. I’m very happy with the players that I have here and we’ll fight right until the end to arrive where we want to.’
