Kenny Dalglish is confident Liverpool can still attract top-quality players despite missing out on European qualification for next season.
The Reds' manager believes the five-time European champions' reputation throughout football will be enough to draw top players to Merseyside.
Liverpool missed out on a Europa League berth on the final day of the Premier League season after they were beaten 1-0 by Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur defeated Birmingham City.
"I've heard people say us not playing in Europe means we won't be an attractive proposition for some players. I disagree," the Scot told LFC Weekly.
"The history and tradition of this club makes us attractive whether we are or aren't involved in European competition. If a player thinks otherwise we are better off without him."
