Brendan Rodgers insists that suspended midfielder Jordan Henderson still has a “vital” part to play in Liverpool’s title challenge.

Henderson is set to miss three of the Reds’ last four games after being shown a straight red card for a dangerous tackle on Samir Nasri late on in last weekend’s 3-2 win over Manchester City.

But despite being unavailable, Rodgers has revealed that Henderson will travel with the Liverpool squad for Sunday’s trip to Norwich City.

“Even though we’ll lose him on the field we can’t lose his personality off the field as well which is why he’ll still travel and be a part of what we’re doing,” said Rodgers.

“Jordan will still travel with the team. I’ve told him he’s a vital member of the group and he might not be able to effect the next three games on the field but he’s going to be very important for our changing room, our travelling and our hotels because he’s very much a part of us.”

Liverpool are currently two points clear at the top of the Premier League table with four games left to play.
