Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has turned down an approach from Liverpool for an interview for their vacant managerial post, according to skysports.com.

Rodgers had been linked with the role after a highly-successful spell in charge of Swansea. The Northern Irish boss guided the South Wales club to promotion from the Championship before comfortably keeping them in the Premier League this season, finishing 11th in their debut season.

Rodgers also won plaudits for his club's free-flowing, possession-based philosophy, but the former-Chelsea coach has insisted he will be going nowhere this summer.

Fenway Sports Group (FSG) have insisted they will not rush in their search for a new boss, but have reportedly already made an approach for Wigan boss Roberto Martinez.

Other managers linked with the post include former Reds boss Rafael Benitez, ex-Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas and Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp. However, it seems Rogers has ruled himself out of the running for the post and will instead stick with the Swans.

Liverpool decided to part company with Kenny Dalglish on Wednesday after success in the cup competitions could not mask a disappointing league campaign. The Reds finished eighth, and recorded their lowest ever Premier League points tally and their worst league placing for 18 years.
