Kenny: No place to hide

KENNY DALGLISH has told his Liverpool players that there's no hiding place following last week's dismal defeat to Bolton Wanderers.

And ahead of tomorrow's Carling Cup semi-final second leg against Manchester City, quickly followed by Saturday's FA Cup clash with United, Dalglish says he was right to criticise his players after their display at the Reebok Stadium.

"I think what was said had to be said. At the end of the day I don't think anyone can object to the fact that we never played anything like we're capable of playing," said Dalglish.

"In the past we've rightly praised them when they've deserved it, and we've congratulated them for the way they've gone about their work.

"When you've been critical it doesn't mean you're getting any pleasure from it.

"It's a difficult thing to do but I think it was an honest thing to do as well. I don't think anybody can hide behind a performance like we had on Saturday."
