Reported interest in Basel's Egyptian wide-man Mohammed Salah had led to speculation that Rodgers is contemplating sending Sterling out on loan to continue his development with regular first-team football.

But speaking at his post-match press conference following Liverpool's 2-0 FA Cup third-round victory over Oldham, Rodgers admitted he had no idea where the reports had emanated from and dismissed the idea that Sterling could leave the club.

"I don't know where it has come from. I don't think you let a player who's in your team and playing exceptionally well go on loan," Rodgers said.

"It must have been one of the media guys whose entry checked four or five months later. I think it must have been in the entry for four or five months and he hasn't looked at it and he's just picked it up and put it in the paper.

"He (Raheem) was excellent today. His strength and pace was frightening today so no he won't be going anywhere," Rodgers added.

Sterling became the third-youngest player in Liverpool's history after making his debut in the club's Premier League game against Wigan in March 2012 aged 17 years and 107 days.

The former QPR youngster made his England debut later that year in November in England's 4-2 defeat against Sweden in Stockholm.

The 19-year-old has started Liverpool's last nine matches.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
