Whittaker hopes to get Adams the Norwich job permanently

Scotland defender Steven Whittaker hopes Norwich can secure Premier League survival and earn Neil Adams the Carrow Road manager's job on a permanent basis.

Whittaker was a peripheral figure under Chris Hughton, who was sacked two weeks ago with five games to play and Norwich in the relegation mire.§

I hope he is the manager here next season.

A lot of the boys had a boost, training's been a lot higher tempo than before and that's taken it into the games as well.

I think there's been a big change the way we're playing, the positive approach that we've got and he's got is rubbing off on the boys and hopefully we can get the results.

We've done well in the two games he's been in charge of so far, but the results haven't quite matched the performances, so that's something we're looking to improve on.

Rodgers hails Suarez ahead of Norwich test

Brendan Rodgers has paid tribute to Luis Suarez, who will look to continue one of the more remarkable Premier League scoring records when Liverpool face Norwich on Sunday.

I saw his three goals that he scored at Carrow Road before I came in and then obviously he's had four and three during my time here against Norwich.

But I take most solace from what we do as a team. Luis plays that role really well, he's scored a big part of his goals up there on his own.

He enjoys that role, the freedom and the space that it offers, and thankfully we've got other players that can score goals in the team. He's been fantastic and he will continue to be.
