Brendan Rodgers made a pot shot against Liverpool's owner because he could not defend himself to be successful.

Northern Ireland coach Rodgers was the chief of the Reds from June 2012 until his release in October 2015. During this time, he finished seventh, sixth and second place in the Premier League.

During his tenure at Anfield, Liverpool was known for its less solid defense – with 151 goals conceded in 123 responsible Premier League games.

Obviously, Rodgers received funds to conclude defensive contracts after injecting £ 20m on center-back Dejan Lovren, £ 15m on Mamadou Sakho and Nathaniel Clyne, and £ 9m on keeper Simon Mignolet.

The former Swansea coach has since moved to Celtic and now to Leicester, who has scored only 16 goals since taking up his post in February.

And Rodgers secured his record and attacked Reds Chiefs for not supporting him.

"I think if you look when I was in Scotland [with Celtic] We also had defensive records, "said Rodgers.

"In Liverpool, of course, we made very good progress, did you ask if I had the players to defend how we want to defend?"

Rodgers said, "I suppose we threw a hand grenade right in the middle of the top four.

"But we do not think about the title race. We think about developing a team and improving the players. That's our only focus.

"Our job is to hope to be among the top four. When I came here I said it would be great to play European football.

"The players deserve high praise. They play with confidence and they play with steel. "
