Kenny Dalglish has insisted Liverpool’s season has not been “too bad” – despite the Reds failure to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League.

Liverpool are on course to end up in eighth position, which would equal their worst campaign since the Premier League’s formation unless they can better seventh-placed Everton’s result against Newcastle on Sunday.

Dalglish’s side face a difficult trip to the Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea City – and the 61-year-old wants the Reds to end the season on a positive note after their Carling Cup success in February.

“We’ve got a desire to go there and win and, as we’ve said before, we want to do as well as we possibly can in every game we play.

“To win a trophy after six years was a good result for us, to get to the FA Cup final was a good result, and to get into the Europa League is also a measure of success.

“We’re not happy finishing below anybody in the table. We want to be finishing above everybody.

“Whoever is in our road, it is up to us to be better than they are and get there when we can – but it’s not been too bad a season for us.”

Dalglish also heaped praise on Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers for guiding the Swans to safety in their first season in the top flight – and the Liverpool boss expects last year’s play-off winners to prove difficult opposition for his side.

“They’ve been fantastic this year,” added Dalglish.

“We had a good game against them earlier in the season at Anfield and they’ve done really well, kept to their beliefs and that’s stood them in good stead.

“The good work was started off with Roberto Martinez and has carried on with the people who are there now.

“Their position in the league doesn’t mislead anybody. They are a good side and it’ll be a difficult game for us.”
