Brendan Rodgers has told UTV he and his team will take the fight for the Premier League title to the wire on Sunday.

Following a devastating draw against Crystal Palace, the Reds need to win their final game of the season against Newcastle and hope West Ham can take all three points off current league leaders Manchester City, to bring the title back to Anfield for the first time in 24 years.

It has been a rollercoaster of a season for Rodgers with the title looking like it was bound for Merseyside in all but the final weeks of the season.

In his final press conference of the season ahead of Sunday's crunch tie, the Carnlough man said his players and the club could be very proud of their season and the success achieved.

He said: "We have had a remarkable season, the players have put Liverpool back on the world map and cometh Sunday we will fight right to the end.

"If we win the game and end up not winning the title, I think, to finish second to the richest team in the history of sport really shows the measure and the progress we have made here."

Rodgers also spoke of the overwhelming support he had received from home since he took charge of the iconic club.

He added: "I've received hundreds of letters and cards from back home wishing us well and no matter where we finish, they have congratulated us on a great season.

"I know back home there is a fantastic Liverpool support."

Rumours have been circulating that the 41-year-old is to sign another deal with the club for a further four years in charge.

He, however, did not want to distract from the club's on-field aims.

Rodgers said: "I've obviously been in discussion with the club and a framework for a deal is in place.

"But it will be the end of the season, I want nothing to detract from the players and the club and we can deal with that after the season."
