Neil Warnock: Liverpool need a few 'bread and butter' style players

Former Leeds boss Neil Warnock feels Liverpool are heading in the right direction with their transfer business.

Former Leeds United and Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock told talkSPORT that he feels Liverpool need to make a few ‘bread and butter’ style signings.

Warnock feels Liverpool are heading in the right direction with the deals for James Milner and Danny Ings, which he’s suggested came as a direct result of manager Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers looks as though he’s keen to get his transfer business done early, which will allow him to have maximum time working with his new arrivals before the start of the next Premier League campaign.

“I think Liverpool just need a few bread and butter players if I’m honest – People like Ings and Milner will be down to him (Rodgers) – You need good players and good pros like that in your dressing room,” he said.

Liverpool took a risk on a few big money signings last summer and it didn’t work out as the boss would have been hoping.

Several players have failed to have the impact that he would have been hoping for, which has forced him into going to a more basic level of player, suited to the way Liverpool want to play their Premier League football.

Milner is a versatile player, who will work hard across the midfield of the team, and Ings is an honest striker, who will get his head down and make the most of the service which is sent his way.

If Rodgers can add one or two more similar players in necessary areas around the squad, Liverpool will have a great chance of battling back into that top four and securing Champions League football again.
