    Rodgers' departure was announced after the game, but the BBC reported that the decision was made before kick-off.

    Liverpool said in a statement on Sunday:

    Liverpool Football Club has announced that Brendan Rodgers will leave his post with immediate effect after having his contract terminated. The process to appoint a new manager is underway.

    The Northern Irishman joined Liverpool FC in June 2012 and helped the club mount a memorable title challenge in his second season, as well as helping to develop many exciting young players.

    LFC's ownership have paid tribute and thanked Rodgers for his contribution.
