Brendan Rodgers insists Luis Suarez will be in good condition when he returns to action.

The No. 7 who will complete his suspension against Southampton this weekend has been taking part in behind-closed-doors exhibitions at Melwood to ensure he maintains his fitness levels ahead of his comeback.

“We have been organizing some games behind closed doors both in terms of in-house 11-a-side matches and bringing teams in” Rodgers said.

“In between that he has had international games as well to keep him ticking over. He has been doing a lot of individual work specific to him on top of all that and replicating his high intensity speed runs that he would do in a game.
