Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has revealed owners Fenway Sports Group are fully committed to continuing the rebuilding job at Anfield in the summer.

FSG broke the club's transfer record with the £35million purchase of Newcastle striker Andy Carroll, having already secured a £22.8million deal to bring in Ajax forward Luis Suarez.

The £50million sale of Fernando Torres and the £6million brought in by Ryan Babel's transfer to Hoffenheim means the net spend in January was only £1.8million.

It would have been more had they managed to convince Blackpool to part with captain Charlie Adam.

However, Dalglish - whose chances of getting the manager's job on a full-time basis at the end of the season appear to have been boosted by the significant transfer outlay - believes there will further strengthening in the summer.

‘The owners have been fantastically supportive during this window, which was busy but I think very beneficial to the football club,’ said the Scot.

‘In fact they may be slightly disappointed they didn't get someone else.

‘Anyone who had any doubts about hunger or anybody taking this club forward, they're gone now.

‘In the summer we'll be looking forward to trying to enhance what we've got.’
