Hodgson in dock as Reds hit bottom

ROY Hodgson should ring Robbie Keane and ask him for advice on how to survive a short stay at Anfield.

"The supporters are entitled to sound their frustrations and they have plenty to be frustrated about," said Hodgson after the 2-1 defeat to Premier League novices Blackpool.
