thumbnail Hello,

Board member is adamant the club are committed to long-term plan and will not be rushed into the transfer market despite having funds available as they are happy with current squad

Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre has stated there is more money for manager Kenny Dalglish to spend in the transfer market, but has insisted the club are happy with their current squad.

The Reds invested heavily in 2011 spending over £100 million on players such as Andy Carroll, Luis Suarez, Stewart Downing, Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam, while Ayre says there is more cash to spend if needed.

Despite the mass amount of money spent, few of the players have truly lived up to expectations, but Ayre is sure Dalglish is more than content with the squad currently available to him

Ayre told Sky Sports News: "Money is not an issue. If we need somebody and there's a player I think our owners have shown the level of commitment you would expect from a good ownership group that the manager will get supported whatever he needs.

"But that's not the same as saying we will just go spend money because we have got it or just because we can.”

Ayre has insisted Liverpool are sticking to a long-term plan and although money is available, they will not rush into making any decisions unless a good deal is available.

He added: "It is about the long-term plan of where they want the squad and where they want the team to be, that's not about any particular transfer window it's about continuing to improve.

"If an opportunity presents itself I am sure we will look at it, but right now it's about keeping going and improving and getting the best out of what we have got.

"We have got some great players in a great squad of players and they are focused on pushing that forward."
