Brendan Rodgers has gone through a tough period as a football manager, having lost his job with Liverpool earlier this season.

However, none of his professional turmoils would have come close to pain felt over the loss of his parents.

Without doubt it was the traumatic experience of losing his father to cancer at the age of just 59 which helped to prompt his visit to the hospice.

He has agreed to become a hospice ambassador, which is a cause close to his heart. It is also good to see people give something back to society when they don't have to.
