Liverpool legend Phil Thompson is shocked by the dismal form of Kenny Dalglish's team.

The ex-Liverpool skipper, who won seven ­titles and three European Cups ­between 1971 and 1984, has ­labelled the recent wretched run ­unacceptable.

Thommo, 58, said: "Since the ­Carling Cup and prior to the Carling Cup, it has not been good enough.

"Everyone has to take responsibility for the results - the players, Kenny and his coaching staff. Everybody.

"But there's no question Kenny is the right person for the job."
