BRENDAN RODGERS has paid tribute to the council staff who worked tirelessly to ensure Liverpool’s Premier League match against Norwich City went ahead.
The efforts to treat surrounding roads and footpaths following Friday’s snowfall eased any fears that the game could be postponed due to safety fears.
“Driving into Liverpool on Saturday morning I saw all the work being done by the local authorities to get the game on,” the Reds boss said.
“I want to say a big thank-you to everyone who was involved. They did a fantastic job with all the gritting and it’s thanks to them that the game was played.
“They made it happen and we went on to get a good result so it worked out well for everyone.”
