Dalglish insists the progress of the club this season is on track.
He said: "Instant success is a modern idiom; you have social media which is instant and when you ask a question you get an instant reply.
"Everything is instant now — even coffee. There is no way it is anything other than that.
"But what has not changed at this club is the desire of the players to take the club forward and that is what we are trying to do.
"I don't think it will be done overnight, it won't be done on Twitter, it will be done with a lot of hard work and that is what we are trying to do.
"There is no success in football which is instant — you can forget instant."
