Jamie Carragher says Brendan Rodgers is letting Simon Mignolet know that he needs a new goalkeeper after he dropped the Belgian for their clash at Old Trafford.

The 26-year-old shot stopper has struggled for confidence and form this season, conceding a staggering 30 goals in 22 games in all competitions.

And Liverpool legend Carragher talked up the significance of Rodgers leaving Mignolet out for a clash against their bitter rivals Manchester United.

“He [Mignolet] needed to come out of the team for his own good, never mind the team,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“To do it here at Old Trafford, if you look at the bigger picture, he is basically saying to Simon Mignolet that he needs a new goalkeeper.

“He could have taken him out for a game at Anfield. He is making the crowd and defenders nervous at home. But to do it at Old Trafford.

“We all think at the end of the season, Liverpool need a new goalkeeper. But to do it now in the middle of the season!”
