The Reds took their tally under the Scot to 20 points from 10 league games with a 2-0 win at Sunderland which left them four points adrift of fifth-placed Tottenham, who have a game in hand.

They did so amid much speculation over Dalglish's future, but he is remaining relaxed as he plots the way forward on the pitch.

He said: "As regards the job, I have seen in the papers I have asked for four years. Well, I don't know who I asked.

"I saw that I was offered two (years) - I don't know who sent that in. Somebody said have I spoken to the owners - of course you speak to the owners, you speak to them regularly during the week.

"It's their club and they are fantastic owners and they are very supportive owners. But there have been no detailed discussions about next season, so until there is something that's to be said, we cannot make it up. Until there's something to be said, there's nothing. I don't have a problem if it is in the best interests of the football club."
