Rodgers fined for Mason comments

Rodgers admitted an FA misconduct charge after he said following the 2-1 defeat by Manchester City that the match should not have been refereed by an official from Greater Manchester – Mason is from Bolton. An FA independent regulatory commission imposed the sanction and warned Rodgers as to his future conduct. center_img Rodgers said after the City match: “Hopefully we don’t have a Greater Manchester referee again for the Liverpool v Manchester City game.
