Video - Rodgers claims he is doing another rebuilding job at Liverpool

Criticism continues to flow for Rodgers
Criticism continues to flow for Rodgers

Liverpoool manager Brendan Rodgers suggested he needed time to complete another rebuilding job after his side's 1-1 draw with Swiss minnows Sion in the Europa League.

Adam Lallana's fourth-minute strike - his second goal in as many European matches - was cancelled out by Ebenezer Assifuah and the Reds failed to change the 1-1 scoreline in the remaining 73 minutes.

After an identical result in their opening match in Bordeaux, Reds manager Brendan Rodgers stressed their form at Anfield would be the deciding factor.

He targeted three wins at home to get them out of Group B, but having now dropped two points they may have to recover those in either Kazan at the start of the Russian winter or in the return fixture against Sion in December.

On the evidence so far neither will be an easy task, especially considering Liverpool have won just one of their last nine matches in Europe since beating minnows Ludogorets at Anfield a year ago.

A side currently sitting fifth in a Swiss league of just 10 teams not only managed to keep their more illustrious opponents at bay but also bounced back from conceding early to earn a point.

Yet it was Rodgers' comments after the game that sparked a reaction on social media, with his claim that he needed to be given time to rebuild his team in his fourth season at Liverpool drawing plenty of criticism as he made these comments to BT Sport:
