Dalglish content with Reds' depth

LIVERPOOL MANAGER Kenny Dalglish insists he is happy with his squad’s depth ahead of their trip to Newcastle on Sunday.

Dalglish’s squad has diminished in recent weeks, with Craig Bellamy, Maxi Rodriquez, Glen Johnson, Daniel Agger and Martin Kelly all missing the defeat to Wigan at Anfield last time out.

Despite conceding his squad had been tested in the last week after three games in seven days, the 61-year-old still believes he has a strong selection of players to choose from.

“We have a very strong squad which has been stretched but so have other people who are in a similar position,” Dalglish told reporters.  ”It was stretched at the weekend after three games in seven days but that has gone now.

“The clear week we have gives everyone a chance, if they have bumps and bruises, to get rid of them and it gives the boys another week to get fit. We should get a few back but it’s only Thursday for a Sunday game.”

Charlie Adam will not feature against Newcastle due to a knee injury, but his manager has rejected claims that the former Blackpool player will miss the rest of the season.

“Charlie’s another two weeks and then we’ll find out a proper diagnosis without people speculating what’s wrong,” Dalglish said. ”Rather than be inaccurate or incorrect or someone making up a story we will wait and see in a couple of weeks how long he’s going to be out.”
