Brendan Rodgers will not change his decision over Loic Remy despite feeling for the unfortunate French star.

QPR boss Harry Redknapp appeared to take a serious dig at Liverpool on Monday, after Rodgers' Reds abandoned an 8.5million deal for Remy when the striker apparently encountered problems with a stringent medical check.

It is understood Liverpool took several opinions from top specialists before pulling the plug on the deal - a decision they know leaves them in a tough position, without a backup striker just over a fortnight before the start of the new season.

The Kop club had agreed personal terms with the France international after triggering the move with a bid of £8.5m and had even allocated him a squad number.

Rodgers admitted it was a desperately tough situation.
