Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers has turned down the opportunity to hold talks with Liverpool over the managerial vacancy at Anfield, Press Association Sport understands.

Liverpool sacked Kenny Dalglish on Wednesday after finishing a disappointing eighth in the Barclays Premier League.

Fenway Sports Group, the Merseyside club's owners, have had an approach to speak to Wigan manager Roberto Martinez accepted and were also keen to interview Rodgers. But it is understood the 39-year-old has rejected the approach.
