Simon Mignolet will know that he is playing for his Liverpool future, according to Tony Cascarino.

The Reds number one made a poor error to allow their Group B opponents Ludogorets to break the deadlock in the third minute on Wednesday night.

If he [Mignolet] doesn’t have a better second half of the season, Liverpool will get a [new] goalkeeper

Rickie Lambert and Jordan Henderson reversed the scoreline before the Bulgarian side managed to net a late equaliser to deny the Reds a much-needed Champions League win.

And former Chelsea striker Cascarino can’t see Brendan Rodgers sticking with the Belgian much longer unless the shot stopper makes a big improvement.

“[Simon Mignolet] knows he is probably playing for his Liverpool future,” Cascarino told Sky Sports News.

“Liverpool are saying they won’t go in the market in January, but if he doesn’t have a better second half of the season, Liverpool will get a [new] goalkeeper again.

“If you play for a big football club, you look at the photos on the wall, if you don’t perform, you won’t be in the photo the year after.”

Mignolet, who was heavily criticised by Bruce Grobbelaar on Wednesday morning, moved to Anfield in a £10m deal from Sunderland in 2012.
