Liverpool will want to put things right next season, says Aldridge

The Reds were beaten 6-1 by Stoke City on the final day of the 2014/15 Premier League season in a painful and heavy defeat.

John Aldridge has told the club’s official website that the Liverpool squad will be desperate to put things right next term.

The Reds finished sixth in the table last season, falling into the position on the final day courtesy of an embarrassing 6-1 defeat to Stoke at the Britannia Stadium.

They were also well beaten by Crystal Palace at Anfield the week before, in Steven Gerrard’s final home game, compounding a poor finish to the season. As a result, Aldridge says they will be keen to amends as soon as they can.

"I'd like to think for a lot of the players, that won't go away for a long time," he said.

"Pre-season will help but certainly when you get to the first game of next season, that is one game that I could not wait to come along to make amends and put right.”

The side had been keen to finish Gerrard’s time at the club with a flourish, with the final game against Stoke a perfect opportunity after the defeat to Crystal Palace.

However, things went from bad to worse as Mark Hughes’ side ran riot on the last day, with the defeat leaving question marks hanging over manager Brendan Rodgers’ future at the club.

And while last season is now consigned to the history books, Aldridge says that result will hurt Liverpool fans for a while yet.
