Rodgers dismisses quit talk

Watford boss Brendan Rodgers is bemused by reports suggesting he could quit the club only two weeks after being confirmed as Aidy Boothroyd's successor.
The former Chelsea reserve-team manager is yet to sign a contract with the Hornets and the club is in a state of flux following Graham Simpson's decision to resign from the board of directors.
The 35-year-old Rodgers told the Daily Mail: "This issue has come up because of speculation about my contract, which I haven't yet signed, and not because of anything derogatory.
"I'm relaxed about it and I've got the support of the people at Watford but there were a couple of things I needed to make right for myself and my family and I wasn't going to sign until they were.
"I'm hopeful it will be finalised soon because I'm ambitious."
