A selection of the latest stories involving Liverpool Football Club this Thursday morning

Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones has said he is disappointed before every game as he knows he won't be playing - suggesting he would like to see more first team action for the Reds.

Jones is currently the understudy to Simon Mignolet at Anfield, and has yet to make a first team appearance for the club this season, with Mignolet even preferred in the Capital One Cup tie against Middlesbrough last month.

In an interview with the Liverpool Echo, Jones said: “If I just decided that I wasn’t going to play and I was going to be content with that then the work I do on the training pitch would suffer.

“I want to play every game that comes along and I would like to be out there but the situation is what it is and I have got to be ready when called upon.

“I have always done that. There was a couple of season ago when I got a fair few games and the manager said that was from the work I put in during training."

Manager Brendan Rodgers is set to meet England boss Roy Hodgson for talks this weekend according to several newspapers.

Hodgson will be attending Liverpool's trip to Loftus Road to take on Queens Park Rangers, after a week where Hodgson has been criticised for the handling of Raheem Sterling's omission from the starting line-up in a Euro 2016 qualifier against Estonia, where Hodgson claimed the 19-year-old was tired. 

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez was thankful to Liverpool last night after he was presented with the Golden Shoe by Kenny Dalglish for his 31 goals for Liverpool last season.

Suarez said at a ceremony: “On a personal and individual level it is always welcome to win these titles.

“But you would not win them if it was not for the whole of the team and for your colleagues and for the joint effort that everyone makes every day to achieve results.”
