Liverpool fans are trying to raise £7m to get Brendan Rodgers sacked

You may never walk alone at Liverpool football club, but it won’t stop some supporters having a whip round to kick you out.

Disenchanted at the poor start to the season under boss Brendan Rodgers, one group of fans on Merseyside have set up a Fund Me webpage designed to raise the apparent £7m compensation clause it would take for the board to sack the Northern Irishman. 

Yes, despite ability to spot ‘great character’, many fans believe he has taken the club as far as he can, climaxing of course with that breakneck season where they were pipped to the post and memes of Steven Gerrard falling over went viral.

In fact, 71 per cent of people we polled back in June claimed he would walk by November. Should you be of a similar mind set, you can chip in a few quid here.

We can only imagine how many Manchester United fans, having spotted the scheme, will now be setting up similar donation systems in a bid to get the Liverpool board to keep him and confine their rivals to yet more Thursday night outings in the Europa League.

As for how Rodgers must be feeling at the prospect of a cool 7 million? Click the video below.
