Dalglish unhappy with Liverpool performance in Rangers defeat

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish was upset with their performance in defeat to Rangers last night.

A Lee McCulloch strike in the first half gave Ally McCoist's side the win on a night when 19 players got a run out for Liverpool.

"It was worthwhile in some aspects," Dalglish told liverpoolfc.tv. "We've got some boys who haven't played for a while, like Glen Johnson. He got injured before the end of last season, went with England, came back and has never really been fully fit since. For him to get an hour was important.

"For Daniel Agger to get some time after injuring his rib and the same for Fabio Aurelio - it's a useful exercise for some of the boys.

"I haven't seen much of Rangers this season so I don't know if that was them playing well or badly. For us, that was us playing badly. But that's not to take anything away from Rangers.

"I don't think there was food for thought for the Norwich game. It was a disappointing result and we're a lot better than that but I suppose it was in mitigating circumstances because we had people coming back who haven't played too often."
