Ex-Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has quashed all the rumours that he had a problem with Raheem Sterling during his stint at Liverpool. Sterling left Liverpool in 2015 to sign for Manchester City for a whopping £44million.

Sterling had a difficult first season at The Etihad but in this season under a new manager, he has found his form back. Sterling was part of an attacking trio alongside Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez at the Anfield and they almost handed the title to Liverpool.

Sterling was 17 years old when he first broke into the team and the youngster has played 129 matches for the Reds and has netted a total of 23 times.

“I never had issues with Raheem,” said the present Celtic manager. “Yes, there was that moment where we made a point to him early on, but that was it really. He had a personality but he could accept that and hopefully, if you speak to him he would say we had a really close relationship.”

Rodgers was at the helm of Liverpool for three years before being replaced by Jurgen Klopp. Sterling failed to replicate his form under Manuel Pellegrini but under Pep Guardiola he already has four goals in his tally.

“There were people trying to create the move, things being instigated that were not right and the final straw was that he had fallen out with the manager. He is back to where he was at with me.” Rodgers added.

Sterling set to be reunited with his old boss when City will be facing Celtic in a Champions League Group match on Wednesday.
