No going back for striker - Rodgers

Last Updated: Tue, 29 Jul 2014 08:35

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says the club have moved on after pulling the plug on the Loic Remy move and will not revisit the deal.

The Reds had agreed terms with the France striker after having an £8.5million offer accepted by QPR but they pulled out of the move reportedly because of a problem with his medical, although that has not been confirmed.

That leaves the Reds short up front with the new season approaching but they will not be going back in for the striker and will turn their attentions elsewhere, according to Rodgers.

He said: "We have made a decision, as a club, not to go ahead with the deal.

"It's unfortunate for the player. We are disappointed for the player. But these things happen.

"It's happened before and there's nothing more to be said and we will move on and look at other targets."
