McAllister Linked With Liverpool

Gary McAllister, Coventry City FCSky Blues skipper Gary McAllister is being linked with a move to Liverpool.

The 35-year-old midfielder, who is out of contract at the end of the season, has still not agreed terms to extend his three-season stay at Highfield Road and is currently thinking over the offer of a one-year contract.

He has attracted interest from Derby County and now Gerard Houllier is rumoured to be keen to recruit his services if the Anfield side make it through to the Champions League.

Houllier dropped a hint of his interest when the two clubs met at Highfield Road a month ago. In an interview he said:

"There are no particular players in Coventry that we are focusing on, it is all of them although I do like McAllister, he is a good player – I have always liked him."

McAllister would be unlikely to play every week for the Reds but the lure of Europe and playing with top stars is bound to be attractive to the former Leeds and Leicester midfielder.

Meanwhile City have just one game to end their dreadful away record.

Their 2-0 defeat at Newcastle means they have not won away from home in the league for over a year and have just a trip to Watford before the end of the season.

Keeper Magnus Hedman will only be playing in that game – Gordon Strachan will name Steve Ogrizovic against Sheffield Wednesday to mark the veteran’s retirement.

Hedman said:

"We have two games left and we have to go out to win them both. If we can pick up maximum points it will be something positive we can take into next season.

"Our away record is extraordinary but it is something we must view as a challenge. Whatever happens we will be left thinking that with just two or three away wins we would be half way up the table."
