Liverpool: Brendan Rodgers frustrated by Lazar Markovic ban

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says he is "disappointed" by the four-match ban handed to midfielder Lazar Markovic by Uefa.

Markovic, 20, was sent off for flicking his hand in the face of Behrang Safari towards the end of a 1-1 draw with Basel that saw Liverpool eliminated from the Champions League.

The Reds' Europa League campaign starts against Turkish side Besiktas on Thursday.
