We can all have a nervous laugh at Simon Mignolet since his costly mistake didn’t end up costing Liverpool dearly against Bordeaux, but the man himself is determined to put the record straight. The Belgian, who allowed his opponents to score from an indirect free-kick after holding onto the ball for too long, said he wasn’t aware of how long he had held itl. In total Mignolet had the ball in his hands for over 20 seconds - luckily for him Christian Benteke and James Milner spared his blushes. Moving on, Steven Gerrard has admitted he was disappointed that Liverpool didn’t sign Dele Alli before he was snapped up by Tottenham. Rumour has it that the fabled transfer committee at Anfield told Brendan Rodgers no when he proposed a deal.
