Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has denied having a bust-up with Fulham assistant coach Ray Wilkins during Wednesday's Premier League clash.

Rodgers and Wilkins had a heated exchange at Craven Cottage in a match that the Reds came from behind in to run out 3-2 winners, a bitter blow to Fulham, who are fighting against relegation.

But Rodgers has played down reports of a big bust-up with Wilkins.

"No bust-up at all", Rodgers explained to a press conference when asked.


"Ray's a good man and one of the nicest guys I've met in football.

"There was no bust-up, just a disagreement on the side about something that took place during the game.

"But anyone who knows me knows I'm not like that and I prefer to concentrate on the game on the pitch."

Rodgers' men moved to within four points of Premier League leaders Chelsea with their win over Fulham, taking advantage of dropped points by the Blues and also second-placed Arsenal.

Liverpool are next in action on Sunday when they take on Arsenal in the FA Cup.
