Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers arrives at the Old Bailey for the start of his son Anton's trial for sexual assault and voyeurism.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers arrived at the Old Bailey today for the start of his son's trial for alleged sexual assault and voyeurism.

Nineteen-year-old Anton Rodgers is alleged to have assaulted a woman in the Jury's Inn hotel in Brighton, East Sussex with fellow Brighton & Hove Albion players Lewis Dunk, George Baker and now-Bournemouth player Steve Cook.

Rodgers, Cook and Barker are all on bail for the incident, which is said to have occurred in July 2011, and all four of the accused have denied the charges.

The trial will open in front of a jury tomorrow.
