Kenny Dalgish was pleased with his meeting with referee chief Mike Riley. The boss met Riley, the General Manager of Professional Game Match Officials Ltd at Melwood earlier this week. He believes it is good for managers to have this contact with referees and hopes for more amicable meetings in the future. "It was good to see Mike and we had an extremely informative and amicable discussion, which has given us all a better understanding of how things operate," said Dalglish. "It's our job to best represent the Club and protect its interests, but we have the utmost respect for the job referees do and have never wanted or asked for any form of preferential treatment, simply a level playing field for everyone. "We will continue to conduct ourselves in a dignified and respectful manner at all times. "From our perspective it was certainly worthwhile sitting down together and maybe it's something that should happen more often."
