Rodgers admitted an FA misconduct charge after he said following the 2-1 defeat by Manchester City that the match should not have been refereed by an official from Greater Manchester - Mason is from Bolton.

An FA independent regulatory commission imposed the sanction and warned Rodgers as to his future conduct.

Rodgers said after the City match: "Hopefully we don't have a Greater Manchester referee again for the Liverpool v Manchester City game. I'm sure we won't get somebody from the Wirral."
