Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has denied reports suggesting Steven Gerrard has suffered a setback in his bid to return from injury.

The Reds skipper has made only five appearances for the Reds since March owing, in the main, to persistent problems with his groin.

However, the 31-year-old is currently sidelined with an ankle infection and has been forced to wear a protective cast on the area in question.

No date has been set yet on Gerrard's potential return to fitness and, it has been claimed, he faces a significant spell out of action.

But Dalglish has rejected this rumour, and says his captain is steadily heading in the right direction.

"Steven is getting closer to coming back but we cannot put a date on it," Dalglish told the Sunday Mirror.

"There's been no setback. We have said all along that we are really positive about his recuperation.

"Steven's progress has been excellent and he will be back sooner rather than later."
