Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Rodgers sacking, want Carragher and Gerrard alongside next manager

The Reds faithful have taken over social media after the Northern Irishman was finally dismissed.

Liverpool fans had plenty to say on Twitter after the announcement that Brendan Rodgers was sacked on Sunday afternoon. Naturally.

There is so much to say, both in reflection of his time at Anfield and about who should succeed him, that it's very hard to fit even a small portion of it into an article.

Books could be written on Rodgers' time at Liverpool - and they probably will be.

Now, it's a crucial moment in the club's recent history. The Merseyside outfit's next appointment will define whether FSG genuinely want to strive for improvement or are happy with mediocrity.

Will they go for the experience and Champions League titles of Carlo Ancelotti? Will they go for the thrilling passion and Champions League final/Bundesliga achievements of Jurgen Klopp?

An even more pertinent question: will the Liverpool owners really let their next manager function properly without silly transfer committees and red tape & administration affecting their work?

One thing many Liverpool fans are calling for on Twitter is the inclusion of Jamie Carragher in the decision-making process. Or, rather, they want Carragher appointed as the new manager's assistant.

The same has also been said about Steven Gerrard, while plenty actually want either (or both) to even take the top job right now!

Here's a summary of the Gerrard/Carragher sentiments on social media, in response to the Rodgers sacking...
