Dalglish Happy With Progress And Squad Unity

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has stated he is delighted with the progress the club are making under his tenure.

The Scot took over in January after the sacking of Roy Hodgson and has turned the fortunes of the Reds around in his time at the club, bringing players such as Luis Suarez and Stewart Downing.

Dalglish is confident the club can bounce back from their defeat to Stoke last week and is confident the team can recover from any poor results due to the cohesion of his playing squad.

"There are always lots of things for everybody to be happy about," Dalglish told the club's official website.

"The supporters, the staff, the players - everybody. As we always say, if we stick together we are going to be a formidable unit.

"That's the important thing, for everybody to stick together. If we lose a game we have to stick together. There is a disappointment which is good, but no-one is walking around with a petty lip feeling sorry for themselves."

The Scot is unsure whether being out of European competitions will benefit them this season as he believes he would have been able to field a strong side no matter who his team were playing.

He added: "If we had been in the Europa League we would have put out a strong team and we will do the same in the Carling Cup.

"I don't know if it will be beneficial or detrimental to us not being in Europe. It's a long time since this club has been out of Europe so we'll have to wait and see what happens. Only time will tell."
