Finland, Norway and Sweden are currently positioned to get an extra spot in the Europa League but, should England move up the rankings, the Reds could be afforded a place
|5/1||Steven Gerrard is 5/1 with William Hill to score in a Liverpool win over Everton
The Premier League teams ahead of Liverpool in the rankings - Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United - are all likely to qualify for Europe due to their league placings, meaning that the Reds would be next in line, but Rodgers is not interested, with qualification starting on July 18.
The Liverpool boss told reporters: "It's highly unlikely we'd get that route, as it is for the top three countries and we are fourth, but it is not something I would be keen on.
"I want to get there through the right means, through our performance level, and if we have to have a year where we are not in Europe it is going to give us an opportunity to push on."
