BRENDAN RODGERS was in no mood to listen to the never ending transfer speculation and took exception to comments Kris Commons has made about his defenders.

The former Celtic star said fingers would be pointed at Rodgers if he doesn’t deliver a better quality defender and they get sent packing from the Europa League.

Rodgers comprehensive and frank response caught many off guard.

“Right, Kris Commons … I’m about deeds, not words.

“I’ve heard some s*** since I’ve been up here. I’m worried about deeds. That’s the part of your industry that I don’t like”

“I don’t want to stand here and waste my time. I have a mountain of things to do rather than talk about speculation or what Kris Commons or other guys think.

“Everyone has an opinion but the opinions are not always the reality.”
