Former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier has backed Arsene Wenger´s claim that Arsenal´s Champions League dreams were ended by bad refereeing decisions.

The Arsenal boss claimed the Gunners were denied a clear penalty in the first leg and that Tuesday night´s second leg at Anfield was decided by a "dodgy" decision.

Houllier, speaking to reporters at the Soccerex conference at Wembley Stadium, said: "From a personal point of view I was happy Liverpool won but I also felt for my friend Arsene because over the two legs he deserved at least as much to win as Liverpool."
