Dalglish: Adam's season not over

Kenny Dalglish has revealed that Charlie Adam may not need surgery on his injured knee and could yet return before the end of the season.

The Liverpool midfielder limped off against QPR in the Premier League last weekend, and missed Sunday's defeat at Newcastle after scans revealed he had strained ligaments.

Adam has been ruled out of Easter weekend fixtures against Aston Villa and Blackburn, and is unlikely to recover in time to face Everton in the FA Cup semi-final on April 14.

Liverpool slipped below their city rivals after losing at St. James' Park, and now find themselves 16 points adrift of Tottenham and Arsenal in the race for Champions League qualification.

Though Dalglish admits it is too early to assess the full extent of Adam's injury, the manager is hopeful his summer signing will make a welcome return for the end of season run-in.

"We know Charlie has strained knee ligaments but we still don't know how long he will be out," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"He hasn't had an operation and as it stands he's not having one. He needs to rest it for another 10 days or so and then he will be reassessed.

"We'll see how he is then and we'll be in a better position to know when he will be back playing.

"We haven't ruled him out for the rest of the season. We're just waiting to see how he progresses."
