Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers misses QPR game with bug

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will not be at his side's Premier League match at QPR on Sunday because of a virus.

Rodgers, goalkeeper Brad Jones and head of performance Glen Driscoll have been sent home from London with the problem.

Reds' assistant manager Colin Pascoe and first-team coach Mike Marsh will deputise for Rodgers.

"They are not fit to be at the match and any contact with the rest of the squad could cause the bug to spread," said Liverpool club doctor Zaf Iqbal.
