Brendan Rodgers has said that he is very pleased for the club, players and manager at Liverpool for what they have achieved since his exit back in 2015.
The Northern Irish manager was in charge at Anfield between 2012 and 2015 and during that time saw the Reds go close to winning the Premier League title, but for it to fall away in the final days of the 13/14 season.
Indeed, since then he has become a title winner with Scottish side Celtic, whilst the Reds obviously have achieved real success in both the Premier League and Champions League under Jurgen Klopp.
Naturally, then, whenever Rodgers is coming up against the Reds he is asked about things and he cut an upbeat figure, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo on Twitter:

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
There will always be a whiff of wistfulness around that 13/14 season and what could have been for the Reds as they sought a long-awaited league crown.
Of course, there’s been plenty of water under the bridge since and the Reds are now back on top of their perch with a domestic crown finally under their belts.
Leicester are table toppers going into this evening’s clash, though, and need to be beaten in order to make a statement.
