Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish says winning the league is no obsession.

The Reds have struggled in the Premier League this season.

Asked by reporters whether he agreed with Gerard Houllier's pronouncement this week that winning the league was an 'obsession' for a club like Liverpool, Dalglish replied: "I don't know how you define the word 'obsession'.

"It would be fantastic for Liverpool Football Club to win the league. We've won plenty in the past. It's been a while since the last one, and it's an ambition for everyone who supports Liverpool to see them win the league title.

"But, at the end of the day, there are a lot of other games to play other than league matches, and we want to compete in every game we play in.

"I'm not obsessed with anything other than the next game."
