Brendan Rodgers revealed following Liverpool's 2-1 victory at Anfield that he received a text from the striker on Sunday morning.

"Luis Suarez sent us a lovely text this morning, wishing us all the best and telling us to start strong - it's a lovely gesture," said Rodgers.

"He sent the text to me personally. What did it say? Don't be so nosey! I texted him back. It's a great love-in I've got with him!

"He's a great boy, but he's gone. It was a lovely touch. Liverpool will always be in his heart."

Suarez was Liverpool's top scorer last season with 31 league goals, but he was sold to Barcelona last month after being given a four-month ban by FIFA for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup.

It was the third such incident of the Uruguayan's career.

Daniel Sturridge, Suarez's former strike partner, scored Liverpool's winner against Southampton, but Rodgers said that he would look to bring in another striker before the transfer window shuts on September 1.

"We're bigger than any one player," Rodgers said, in reference to Suarez's departure.

"I still think we need a striker, so we'll search through until the end of the window for that."

Suarez could make his Barcelona debut in a friendly against Mexican side Leon on Monday, after the conditions of his suspension were relaxed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
