Rodgers was visiting Charlotte Hind, 30, who used to work at Liverpool as travel coordinator for the club.
When he was at her house, a man in his twenties pulled up outside the house, hurling abuse at Hind. The table topping Reds boss asked him to leave, resulting in the unnamed man getting a cricket bat from his car and started to hit the door of the house.
A neighbour described the incident as follows:
“He [the youth] pulled up outside and he was blowing on the horn.
“Then he got out, went to the boot and got a cricket bat out, it looked new, I think it still had the labels on.
“Brendan appeared at the window upstairs and he was telling him to go away.
“He was just pointing down and telling him to go.
“But he was shouting ‘Get f***ing well down here’.
“He was getting no response so he smashed the door and gave it a couple of whacks.
“Then he went to the back door.
“I think he damaged it, but then he came back round, shouting.”
Neither Rodgers or Hind was hurt, and the police were called as the incident was taking place by shocked neighbours, although the man sped away in his car before they arrived.
