Video: Rodgers on Suarez and FC Gomel

He would get around to talking about FC Gomel eventually, but when Brendan Rodgers sat down for his pre-match press conference, the main topic of discussion was Luis Suarez' new long-term deal, one that will keep the striker at Liverpool after a summer where Rodgers admits he has had to deal with "genuine interest" in the player from other clubs.

Beyond talking about Suarez and his first impressions of the Uruguayan, the press conference contains in full Rodgers' comments on the rumours linking Bellamy and Agger away from Anfield that led to a great deal of discussion amongst Liverpool fans on Wednesday, as well as touching on his personal belief that when it comes to young players, "If you're good enough, you're old enough."

With the second leg of the Europa League qualifier kicking off later today, we'll be back in an hour to get you ready for it with the live matchday thread. We hope you'll join us for it.
