Dalglish ‘fine’ with call-ups

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish insists he is "fine" with the selection of any of his players for England Under-21s this summer.

There has been much speculation about Andy Carroll’s involvement with Stuart Pearce’s squad for the European Championships next month.

Reds midfielder Jay Spearing was also called into group and Dalglish insists he deserves equal mention.

"We will wait and see if he (Carroll) is picked on Monday," said the 60-year-old Scot.

"At the moment Jay is in the squad and he’s not had a mention.

"If he gets into the under-21 squad, it is a fantastic reward for what he’s done.

"If any other of our players go, then fine."
