Kenny Dalglish praises the youngsters' contribution in the Liverpool squad this season.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has praised the youngsters in his squad, claiming that they have done the team proud this season.

Since his return to the club last year, the Scot has not been afraid to give the younger members of his side a run in the side.

Jay Spearing has played a key role in the Merseyside club's season due to injuries, while others such as Jon Flanagan, Jonjo Shelvey and, to a lesser extent, Jack Robinson have also been involved. Also, 17-year-old Raheem Sterling made his competitive first-team debut against Wigan last month.

"We are delighted with Jay and all the kids who have come through. Everyone who has developed has done us proud," said Dalglish.

"We played at Blackburn [last week] with six boys aged 22 or less.

"It helps them but also helps the older ones in the squad, it keeps them and young and fresh and we are delighted with everyone's progress."
