In post-match comments following the Boxing Day defeat at Manchester City, he appeared to question whether it was correct to have an official from Greater Manchester in charge of the game.

As a result he has been landed with an FA charge - he has until 6pm Wednesday to respond.

"Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been charged by The FA over post-match media comments he made following his side's game against Manchester City on 26 December 2013," the FA said in a statement.

"It is alleged the comments by Rodgers called into question the integrity of the match referee, and/or implied that the match referee was motivated by bias; and/or brought the game into disrepute; and/or amounted to a failure to act in the best interests of the game."
