Liverpool boss Dalglish: P*** OFF WENGER!!

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish told Arsenal rival Arsene Wenger to "P*** OFF" during their 1-1 draw yesterday. The rival bosses clashed after Dirk Kuyt's 102nd-minute spot-kick left the Gunners six points behind leaders Manchester United with just six games to go.

Dalglish claimed: "I just told him that I still owe him dinner. There's no problem."

Arsenal thought they had won the game when they scored a 97th-minute penalty but were denied a vital win when Emmanuel Eboue was penalised by ref Andre Marriner for pushing over Lucas.

Wenger said: "All I said to Dalglish was it was not a penalty. You can check with TV to see what I said.

"We conceded a penalty after 11 minutes when the referee said there were eight minutes of injury time.

"I don't see where those three extra minutes came from and it was no penalty. Eboue goes for the ball - not the player. But Lucas stopped in his way in front of him."

Dalglish, who shook hands with his Arsenal counterpart after the final whistle, added: "I don't want to repeat what was said. It would be very sad if that was allowed to overshadow what my players have achieved out there.

"In my opinion there was one correct penalty decision and one incorrect one. Work it out for yourself which was which...

"I was disappointed when Arsenal were awarded that penalty so late in the game - but if that's what is given then you can't dispute it."
