There was much furore when Brendan Rodgers failed to show up for his post-match press conference after the penalty shootout win over Carlisle, but we understand Gary McAllister was always intended to attend.
The Scotsman was seemingly given the nod over the less media-savvy assistant Sean O’Driscoll, who prefers to keep a low profile.
While McAllister was scheduled to attend the post-match press conference, given how the match played out it might have been wise of the manager to show his ‘character’ and ‘bravery’ by attending himself.
“Maybe this is one of those little things that can just pull us together as we look forward to the weekend (home game against Aston Villa on Saturday),” said McAllister.
“We want to perform better and that is what we are striving to do, to get that rhythm back we’ve seen in the past.
“It will get better. The feeling is that we are working hard at training, we will persevere and we will try to win games and perform well.”
