Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has told Andy Carroll to simply improve.

Dalglish was asked what Carroll had to do to improve.

"First he has got to get picked; the best way to do that is performances on and off the pitch - for everyone not just Andy Carroll," he said.

"I never knew him before (he moved to Liverpool) so I don't know what he was like but the football is the most important thing to him and that he is playing.

"That is what he enjoys most. He has a happy home life and if the football is going well then the home life will be happier.

"He loves playing football, loves scoring goals and loves being part and parcel of the team.

"He wants to play as many games as he can and if he is not playing many games then I'm sure that wouldn't be a great point in his Liverpool life."
