Gerrard: Kenny sack talk ludicrous

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has slammed Kop fans who are doubting the managerial capabilities of Kenny Dalglish.

Liverpool manager and captain celebrate together.

Last Saturday's woeful 3-1 defeat to relegation haunted Bolton Wanderers saw the Reds slip to a new low, as Dalglish ran the riot act to his players following the encounter, questioning their desire and commitment.

With the Merseyside giants having amassed just a miserable point this month, fans are beginning to make their feelings known to tactician Dalglish.

Liverpool talisman Gerrard however, is having none of it.

"The few whispers about a change of manager after one defeat is ludicrous, absolutely ludicrous and I just take no notice of that at all," he was quoted as saying in an article from The Sun.

"The thing that needs to change is the people here need to try and not put in performances like the one against Bolton, but get back to the way we've been 95 per cent of the time under Kenny."

"We are playing better football and I'll argue to the death with anyone who says we are not as good a squad as last year."

"We totally understand that certain sections of supporters will be getting frustrated but it is down to us to put it right."

Liverpool, who hold a crucial 1-0 advantage against Manchester City in the Carling Cup semi-finals, will welcome the Citizens to Anfield on Wednesday evening.
