Liverpool occupy fourth place in the Premier League, but are eight points adrift of leaders Arsenal and Rodgers admitted earlier in the week that it's 'too early' for his team to win the title.

He has since clarified these comments by admitting the Merseysiders are not satisfied with their current position and a Champions League place remains a top priority this season.

"Well it's certainly the objective," said Rodgers. "I think that the position we've been in for most of the season means that we're fighting and we're up there.

"I was asked a question yesterday in terms of the title and I gave an answer that I felt was an honest answer. It doesn't mean that we're any less ambitious.

"We want to finish as high as we possibly can, but certainly being in that top four is a key objective for us."

Rodgers admits he needs more new signings in the summer if Liverpool are to mount a sustained challenge for top spot next season.

"I think we'll need to strengthen the overall squad and looking to obviously introduce more quality, but it's only natural," he said.

"The players have been brilliant this season in terms of what they've produced, with what we have, and we just look to continue to develop the squad and I think when we do that then we can be there."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
