Just days after firing all the backroom staff at Anfield including long-time right-hand-man Colin Pascoe who has been Rodgers assistant since his days at Swansea, the Northern Irishman was send on holiday in the luxury Spanish resort of Marbella along with his girlfriend Charlotte Searle.



Even former captain Steven Gerrard was shocked to hear that Pascoe and Mike Marsh had been let go following a disappointing season that saw the Reds finish sixth in the league.



‘I was very surprised to hear about the coaching changes at Liverpool,’ Gerrard said at the launch of BT Sports’ European football channel.



‘I want to hear Brendan speaking at a press conference to hear why he decided to make these decisions, I didn’t expect there to be any changes in the staff positions.’



As the Reds look to overhaul the philosophy at the club, it is rumoured that former player Sami Hyypia and possibly former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen could be brought in to shake things up.
