Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish claimed he would happily sign any more Manchester City outcasts after a stunning display from Craig Bellamy in Wednesday's Carling Cup semi-final success.

Bellamy, who left City for a second spell Anfield last summer, struck the decisive goal as Liverpool saw off the Barclays Premier League leaders over two legs to book a date with Cardiff at Wembley.

The Wales striker capped a tireless performance when he fired home in the 74th minute to secure a 2-2 draw and a 3-2 aggregate victory at Anfield, and Dalglish said: "He works hard but the quality of the boy as well - the second goal was fantastic, how he took it. We are delighted for Craig and we are delighted with Craig."
