Brendan Rodgers will miss today’s clash with QPR at Loftus Road, after the Reds boss succumbed to illness.
Rodgers is one of three club employees that have been sent home from London ahead
of the Premier League clash after picking up what is believed to be a virus. This has made it impossible for him to be in close proximity with the players for fear of spreading the illness.
Head of performance Glen Driscoll and goalkeeper Brad Jones are the other two to be sent home by the club’s medical team.
Club doctor Zaf Iqbal said: “It was impossible for Brendan, Glen and Brad to attend the game. They are not fit to be at the match and any contact with the rest of the squad could cause the bug to spread to more of the playing staff.”
Colin Pascoe and Mike Marsh are set to stand in for Rodgers in his absence.
