Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish refused to criticise England's caretaker manager Stuart Pearce after Steven Gerrard was injured against Holland.

The Reds captain came off in the first half of the 3-2 friendly defeat to the Dutch.

"Until we know exactly what has happened it is difficult for us to presume anything," said Dalglish. "I have fantastic respect for 'Pearcey' - he played for us (under Dalglish at Newcastle)."
