Balotelli replies to Rodgers, Liverpool fans react online

The former Liverpool boss made the gag during an awards ceremony at Celtic on Tuesday night.

THE good natured love-in between ex-Liverpool manager and his former star striker Mario Balotelli has continued today with the Italian striker taking to social media to praise Brendan Rodgers.

The 44-year-old went on to claim that the striker, who spent a solitary season at Anfield, was a "fantastic player".

The Italian scored just four goals in the one full season he enjoyed at the club before being sent back to Milan on loan ahead of a permanent move to Nice the following season.

Jurgen Klopp didn't believe he had a place for Balotelli at Liverpool either, given he already had Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, and Danny Ings.

Raiola negotiated a free transfer to Nice for his client, which was completed on deadline day.

Rodgers was sacked early during the 2015-2016 season but both he and Balotelli have gone about rebuilding their reputations with forward scoring 14 Ligue 1 goals while Celtic are a game away from winning the Scottish treble.

Thankfully, Balotelli didn't rise to the bait, and jokingly told Rodgers that he was in fact the best manager he's worked under, too!
