Rodgers was fined £8,000 after accepting an FA charge for questioning the integrity of Mason following the Boxing Day defeat to Manchester City.

"My view hasn't changed. I obviously accept the punishment but I'm not one who is the enemy to the officials," he said.

"My history will show that, I have always supported and encouraged them.

"I was disappointed after the game, disappointed with the outcome (the fine) considering my history but all I was doing was speaking honestly and in no way was I questioning the integrity of the referee.

"I was just talking about the logic and facts about other appointments would prove that true I am sure.

"But it is gone. The only reason I never challenged it was because I didn't want anything getting in the way of what we are trying to do here.

"It would just prolong it and be something else to talk about when all I want is for us to talk about is our football."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
