Brendan Rodgers reiterates desire to spend in January following Liverpool draw at Swansea

The Reds claimed a 0-0 draw on their manager's first visit back to the Liberty Stadium and the Northern Irishman admitted that he already has his eyes on the next transfer window
Brendan Rodgers has admitted in the wake of Liverpool's 0-0 draw at Swansea that he will be aiming to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window.

Although the Reds had the better of the contest at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday afternoon, they were left to rue a couple of spurned opportunities prompting the Northern Irishman to discuss his intentions in the transfer market.

"You can see that once we can get that quality in to support what we already have, we have enough to keep moving forward," he explained.

"We’ll look to do some business in January. The owners trust me to grow it over time."

The 39-year-old made his first return to Swansea following his summer move to Anfield and he reflected on the reunion.

"It was an emotional return,” he added. “It was a very good game, we played really well and created chances.

"We were unfortunate with the offside. I was really pleased with the method of our game. We had a chance at the end but didn't quite take it.

"It was brilliant to see the people [of Swansea] before the game started. I'll always remember my time here with good memories.

"It was always going to be a tight game. We wanted to keep our run going - I'll never say coming here is two points dropped."

And Rodgers reserved special praise for a former Swan, Joe Allen, who also made his first appearance back at the Liberty Stadium.

"He [Joe Allen] was playing as the controller today, the link player," he said. "Joe has been outstanding since he came in. I thought he played well."
