Lineker reacts on Twitter to Liverpool conceding to Rubin Kazan

After going a goal down to Rubin Kazan, Gary Lineker joked about Liverpool bringing back Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool's first home game under Jurgen Klopp has not begun according to plan.

Early in the first half at Anfield the Reds have fallen a goal down, with Marko Devic scoring an impressive goal for Rubin Kazan.

Amid an air of expectancy and excitement at Anfield, the Reds conceding first was typically anti-climactic.

Match of the Day and BT host Gary Lineker seemed to find it amusing, taking to social networking site Twitter to joke about the recent change in management.

Even with a loss, you would struggle to find a single Liverpool fan who would rather have Brendan Rodgers back at the club.

The Northern Irishman managed to create an air of apathy among supporters, with the last two Europa League games depressingly boring affairs.

Klopp has brought anticipation back in the crowd, and while it could be a tricky start as he gets to know his players and eventually adds his own to the squad, long term the appointment of the German is expected to work out to be a shrewd move by the club.
