Dalglish has overseen a revival in the club's fortunes in recent weeks, but saw his side slump to a 3-1 defeat to relegation-threatened West Ham on Sunday. After the game, Dalglish was asked to comment on reports he had been offered a new contract.

"A contract from who?" was Dalglish's response. A reporter replied "from the club" to which Liverpool's manager said: "I thought you meant the wife was putting me under contract again!

"If there is any news to be told we'll tell you. I'm happy to be here, I'll do what I've got to do for the club that means an awful lot to me.

"There's never been a discussion other than the first ones so I'm not sure where they [the Sunday newspapers] have got that from."
