Dalglish has warned no one should believe they are the finished article yet, just because of their cup runs.
He said: “Don’t think that because we have won the Carling Cup and got to the final of the FA Cup that the work in progress we have spoken of so many times before is finished.
“We will continue to progress, to work hard and to try and make it better. But I don’t think winning a trophy or getting to the final of another will be hurtful in any way to any of the players.
“They have got what they deserve because they deserve some success this year. It’s been fantastic for them to experience it.
“They’re going about their work with the same determination and effort to finish the season with as many victories as we can get. That hasn’t changed and will not change.”
