These are the first pictures of Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling in training after the row over his future this week ramped up.
The Liverpool Echo reported this week how former defender Jamie Carragher said Sterling should be embarrassed to show his face at the training ground.
Yet the 20-year-old looks anything but shy as he shares a laugh with teammates Lucas Leiva and Mamadou Sakho.
There had been some doubt as to whether Sterling would be included for Liverpool at the weekend against Stoke, but his prominent role in training confirms it is likely to be business as usual.
Rodgers said in his press conference this morning that Sterling had behaved 'immaculately' at the club on the training pitch and on the field and expects him to continue to do so.
