Defender Martin Skrtel insists Liverpool's Barclays Premier League performance has to take priority over everything else after coming up short this season.

The Reds' eighth-placed finish has partly contributed to the uncertainty concerning the future of manager Kenny Dalglish. Neither principal owner John Henry nor chairman Tom Werner have, as yet, given any indication what their thoughts are after a hugely disappointing campaign and speculation continues about Dalglish's long-term prospects at Anfield.

And despite encouraging cup runs which saw the club end a six-year wait for a trophy, Skrtel told "We won the Carling Cup and got to the final of the FA Cup, so from that point of view it was a good season in the cups. But I think the most important thing is the league and we didn't get enough in it."
