Kenny Dalglish has set out his stall for Liverpool to mount a title challenge next season.

The Reds scooped the Carling Cup this year, but it has proved to be a season of disappointment with the Reds in eighth in the table going into the final game of the season.

Dalglish claims plans are being made to take the club forward, with possible transfer business taking place in the summer, and is looking for the Reds to be challenging at the top of the table next season.

"We're not happy finishing below anybody in the table," Dalglish said. "We want to be finishing above everybody.

"Whoever is in our road, it is up to us to be better than they are and get there when we can - but it's not been too bad [a season] for us.

"To win a trophy after six years was a good result for us, to get to the FA Cup final was a good result, and to get into the Europa League is also a measure of success."

The end of the season will hand Dalglish the chance to recharge the batteries, but he is likely to be busy in the summer.

He said: "We talk to the owners throughout the whole season, we discuss many facets, we also discuss about availability and possibilities. It is an ongoing process. Nothing much changes but maybe because the transfer window opens some business will be done."
