Brendan Rodgers: "Andy is a terrific young player.
"I had a brief chat with all the lads and over the next couple of weeks I'll be able to speak to them with more confidence and on a one-to-one basis.
"There is no doubt he is a terrific talent. There has been a lot of unfair criticism aimed towards Andy.
"He is a player who can play in a number of styles and it was a wee bit unfair on him (for people) to say he couldn't fit into the way I would want to play.
"For me, your game is based on your players, the players you have. I am here to win games.
"We've got a number of very, very talented players in the group, of which Andy is one."
