Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits that the transfer window didn't go to plan for his side, but refuses to blame the club's owners.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that the transfer window didn't go to plan for his side.

The Reds were widely expected to add one or two players to their squad on deadline day having let the likes of Andy Carroll, Charlie Adam and Jay Spearing leave, but Rodgers missed out on Clint Dempsey and Daniel Sturridge, leaving him short of attacking options.

However, Rodgers has refused to blame the owners for the lack of transfer activity, claiming that they have been honest with him throughout.

"I've had long conversations with the owners," Rodgers told podcast The Anfield Wrap.

"I've got to say they have been very honest and very up front right from the off. I came here first and foremost because of the owners. I felt a genuine honesty in their approach to it and in how they wanted to go forward with the football club.

"Of course the window didn't quite go to plan but going forward a great deal of learning has taken place."

Liverpool are still looking for their first league win under Rodgers, having drawn one and lost two of their opening three games.
