Kenny Dalglish remains immune to criticism as manager of Liverpool FC, although a former player has today made some strong comments about the team’s season, despite a recent Carling Cup triumph at Wembley.

John Aldridge believes that Liverpool are at crisis point after a sixth defeat in seven matches on Sunday when losing 2-0 at Newcastle in a match which saw Andy Carroll booked for diving and Jose Reina sent off for a headbutt.
“There is no getting away from the fact that Liverpool are now in a crisis,” said Aldridge, writing in the Liverpool Echo.
“To lose six out of seven in the league is something the club won’t ever tolerate, we can’t tolerate that.
“To have picked up just eight points out of 36 since the turn of the year is shambolic – that’s relegation form.
“The fact that this is the worst run in the league since 1954 speaks volumes. Questions are being asked and they need to be answered.
“The eyes of the world are on Liverpool and the critics are having a field day. We’re becoming a laughing stock.
“We’re all proud to be associated with the club and everything it has achieved over the years. But at the moment being a Liverpool fan is just embarrassing and that’s something I haven’t had to say before.”
