Liverpool news: Jordan Henderson makes "kick up the backside" admission after Rangers win

It may be just their second win in five games, but Liverpool will have a spring in their step after securing a much-needed 2-0 victory over Rangers in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Reds earned all three points thanks to goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah, putting them in second place in Group A and on course to reach the knockout phase.

It's been a difficult period for the Anfield men in which captain Jordan Henderson has had to ponder ways of motivating his teammates. Jurgen Klopp 's side have come in for intense criticism but will hope that Tuesday's win will give them the confidence boost which they so sorely need.

Here's a round-up of the latest news from Anfield.

Rangers win talking points

After starting the group stage with a nightmare 4-1 defeat to Napoli, Liverpool have responded in emphatic fashion to save their Champions League campaign before it went off the rails. The Reds now have back-to-back victories in Europe under their belts, with Rangers the latest opposition to head home from Anfield empty-handed.

Jurgen Klopp and co followed up on the 2-1 win against Ajax before the international break with another win, this time a much more convincing one. From Trent Alexander-Arnold's response to recent scrutiny to Darwin Nunez's ongoing struggles, there was plenty to debate after the full-time whistle blew on the all-British clash, which was the first ever competitive meeting between the two clubs.

Here are six talking points from the match.

"I've got to sense certain individuals at times need an arm around the shoulder, some of them might need a kick up the backside at times but it's trying to find the balance," Henderson explained. "When we're on the pitch, it's not personal, you try to shout, dictate and do what helps the team.

Benitez 'in the frame' for Premier League return

Former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez is among the candidates to replace under-pressure Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper. Following a 4-0 hammering at Leicester on Monday, which saw Forest slump to bottom of the Premier League table, Cooper is now 'on the brink' of losing his job.

According to the Telegraph, Benitez has already been discussed by the City Ground hierarchy 10 months after his controversial six-month spell as Everton manager came to an unceremonious end. The 2005 Champions League-winning boss notably has an established relationship with Forest advisor Lee Charnley, having worked together at Newcastle.
