The imminent arrival of Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool's new manager has resulted in a clear-out of many of predecessor Brendan Rodgers' backroom staff.

Head of performance Glen Driscoll and head of opposition analysis Chris Davies, who followed Rodgers to Anfield from Swansea in 2012, have also lost their jobs.

It is believed former Reds midfielder McAllister has been offered a role of an ambassadorial nature within the club but has yet to decide whether to take it up.

The former Scotland international took training this morning along with one member of staff in Pep Lijnders, promoted in the summer from the club's academy as a player development coach, who has kept his job.
