'Outstanding' Carroll will have great Liverpool career - Dalglish

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish feels it is way too early to judge Andy Carroll and is confident he will have a great career at the club.

The 23-year old striker continues to come under-fire for underperforming since his £35million move from Newcastle United in January last year but his Reds boss is supremely confident that he will come good once he gets over this tough period.

"One hundred per cent. He is an outstanding footballer who is having a difficult first season at a new club, no more than that," Dalglish said ahead of Liverpool's trip to Newcastle on Sunday.

"A lot of other players have had that situation with high price-tags.

"He is a very young man still, he has got a great career in front of him and I for one hope he has a chance on England duty one day.

"If you put the delivery in the right place and he times his run, he is undefendable.

"I said that when he was here and I am not going to change that opinion. You pick any centre-half in world football and Andy Carroll will score that particular goal."
