London: Liverpool's Australian goalkeeper Brad Jones admits he was relieved to sign a new contract with the Premier League club on Thursday after battling to prove his worth to Reds manager Brendan Rodgers.

Jones was facing a bleak future at Anfield when Rodgers announced his arrival at the club in June by telling the 30-year-old that he wasn't part of his first-team plans.

But despite being linked with a host of goalkeepers in the following months, Rodgers has been impressed by Jones's displays in the absence of injured first-choice Jose Reina and rewarded the Australian with a new deal of unspecified length.
