Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has admitted that he was left “a wee bit offended” after speculation continued on transfer day about potential comings and goings from Anfield.

Dalglish had told fans and the press on Monday that there would be no deadline day transfer activity on Tuesday, but rumours grew surrounding the potential signing of Tottenham striker Jermaine Defoe, amongst others.

The rumours were fuelled by Wolves’ boss Mick McCarthy’s comments that Liverpool had asked to move the match to Wednesday and avoid it clashing with the final day of the transfer window.

“We don’t need to justify the rumours,” said Dalglish after last night’s 3-0 win away at Wolves. “That is not our problem.

“It’s a wee bit insulting when people don’t believe you and I don’t see why we need to be anything other than truthful.”

“You must think we tell you lies because we came out and told you on Monday there would be nothing happening.

“It’s a wee bit insulting when people don’t believe you and I don’t see why we need to be anything other than truthful.”

The only trace of transfer action Liverpool were involved in yesterday was goalkeeper Martin Hansen, who has left to Danish side Viborg FF.
