Liverpool have declined to comment on the future of manager Kenny Dalglish on Tuesday, amid rumours the Scot could be set to part company with the club.

Dalglish's future has been the subject of conjecture following a disappointing Premier League, with Liverpool finishing eighth after a series of poor results at Anfield.

They did, though, lift the Carling Cup trophy, courtesy of a penalty shoot-out win over Cardiff, while they reached the FA Cup final, only to be beaten 2-1 by Chelsea.

Dalglish, accompanied by assistant Steve Clarke, travelled to Boston this week for talks with the club's owner, and speculation has subsequently intensified over whether he will be remaining as Liverpool manager.

ESPN sought to obtain clarity amid the rumours over Dalglish's future, but no comment was given - although an official statement is anticipated within the next 24 hours.

The Scot has come in for criticism after spending over £100 million on new players but failing to oversee a convincing challenge for a top-four finish in the Premier League.
