Liverpool boss Dalglish: Bellamy knows he won't play every game

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is delighted with the form of Craig Bellamy.

Bellamy, 32, capped an impressive individual performance with Liverpool's goal in the 1-1 draw against Norwich City and his attitude is likely to be rewarded with another start in the night's Carling Cup tie against Stoke City, having impressed in the last round win at Brighton.

"Craig is more mature and better educated now," said Dalglish. "You have to be fair to everyone but he is happy to be around the place and play his part.

"He would certainly be much happier if he was playing more but he understands the situation maybe more than when he was younger. He knows everyone respects him here and that is a big thing for him. We give everyone the respect they deserve."
