Warnock: Bolasie ripped Liverpool apart, but Rodgers can't sign him!

Selhurst Park - Crystal Palace - 23/02/2014

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock says that Yannick Bolasie won't be allowed to leave Selhurst Park.

Liverpool's dreadful start to the season was compounded by a 3-1 thrashing at the hands of Crystal Palace on Sunday, with goals from Dwight Gayle, Joe Ledley and Mile Jedinak condemning the Reds to defeat at Selhurst Park.

Despite three goalscorers for Palace, it was winger Yannick Bolasie who stole the show. The Democratic Republic of Congo international tore Liverpool apart time and time again, earning plaudits aplenty for his outstanding display.

The 25-year-old's pace down the flanks was just too much for Liverpool to handle, and his performance sparked rumours that Liverpool could rekindle their interest in the former Bristol City star.

The Reds were believed to be interested in signing Bolasie over the summer, but no move materialised for the enigmatic wide man.

Murmurings have once again linked Brendan Rodgers with a swoop for Bolasie, but his opposite number Neil Warnock says there is no chance that he will be leaving Palace.

"He won’t be going anywhere in January, no chance," said Warnock. "He’s a great lad and the top clubs don’t know what he can and can’t do so how can they come in for him?"

"I think he is made to measure for Palace. It is that kind of the club with the stage and the fans. He needs to find more consistency but now we have three games in a week and so we need him to perform as he did against Liverpool," he added.
