Brendan Rodgers: "That (Sissoko on Allen) was the only challenge I thought that probably looked not as bad at the time, but when you see it again, it was a bad challenge.
"He should have been sent off, if you watch that again.
"I didn't think we deserved to lose the game, but we didn't do enough to win it.
"We had enough of the ball, we had good movement in front of the ball, we just lacked maybe that wee bit of creativity and invention in the final third of the field.
"Anything we had to deal with until the goal, we dealt well with defensively, there were no real issues.
"But we made a mistake and the mistake, unfortunately, has cost us the game and that's the biggest disappointment of it all.
"We are in a transitional phase and have to do better."
