The player had been vocal in his disappointment at a lack of first-team opportunities at the Madejeski this season and there had been rumours he would be leaving in January.

But after Brian Howard sustained a broken cheekbone, the Mali international grabbed his chance with both hands.

"He was outstanding and got a terrific goal. We needed that wee bit of physicality," Rodgers told the club's official website.

"He is a great guy and I was asked this week if he's unhappy but nobody is in better spirits than him."
