Ex Spurs chairman Lord Sugar mocks Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool boss branded a 'big head' by the former Tottenham chairman.

Liverpool suffered another defeat at the weekend, losing 3-1 to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Their title hopes already appear over, with only 14 points amassed from 12 games.

Last season with three games to go they had been odds-on to win the league, but let it slip to Manchester City.

Businessman and television personality Lord Sugar sent a message on Twitter after the game suggesting the credit Brendan Rodgers received last season was unjust.

With Luis Suarez sold to Barcelona for £80 million, Liverpool have struggled to replace him, but their problems have been doubled by the long term injuries suffered by Daniel Sturridge.

Rodgers' management is really being put to the test right now, and his summer signings scrutinised.

The wonders performed last season buys him time and eliminates any possibility of the sack no matter if Liverpool were to finish outside the top four, but more doubts will begin to emerge as to just how much of it was really down to him.
