Liverpool boss thanks fans for training ground banner

Kop Banner

Brendan Rodgers was appreciative of the visible support Liverpool fans showed at Melwood - and do every week at the Kop.

Liverpool have their destiny in their own hands - win their remaining Premier League games and they are the champions - it is as hauntingly simple as that for this Everton fan.

And the way they are currently playing Brendan Rodgers should have no trouble propelling his side in this fashion.

Last weekend they defeated Manchester City 3-2 in a crunch potential title decider - with Philippe Coutinho scoring the winning goal.

But the image that will remain from that game is what happened after the game - when Steven Gerrard, after tears flowed on a day marked by the 25th anniversary of Hillsborough tributes, led a rallying call which was heard by the world.

And yesterday a group of Liverpool fans moved to send on that same message to the players at training.

Spion Kop 1906 design flags and banners that are used in the Kop for Liverpool games - and they were responsible for this one.

And they have since revealed that the Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers came over and thanked them for their efforts.

Just another representation of how much Rodgers understands the mentality of the Liverpool fans - and how he is firmly on their wavelength as they approach a historic end to the season.
