The Other Side: Roy Hodgson - Liverpool

Last updated : 06 January 2011 By Andy

Hodgson was not in the mood for an interview after the game and as soon as his position as Liverpool’s boss was mentioned, he was off.

"I am not prepared to talk about that because obviously I am depressed enough with the performance and the result," he said.

"I have no comments to make and I have no intention to answer any questions on the subject."

Asked about the defeat Hodgson said: "Dejection, bitter disappointment, frustration.

"I am very disappointed for the fans who gave us good support and saw the team concede the goals we did.

"I thought in the second half we did well to retrieve a seemingly hopeless situation and get back on track and had Steven's penalty gone in who knows, we may have made the last five minutes more exciting.

"Unfortunately when you are Liverpool and you lose away to Blackburn there is nothing that can be said which will put a positive slant or make the situation look any brighter.

"As far as I am concerned it is a really bad day and there is not much more I can say other than, to the fans, that anything they are feeling tonight I can assure them the feeling is equally as bad and equally as depressed in the dressing room.

"Tonight was a performance anything other than the performance we wanted to give."
