Media reports on Friday were linking the Reds manager with a move for Finnan but Houlier has been quick to deny these rumours.

"I have seen the reports," he said.

"But recently I have also been linked with Fernandes, with Boumsong, with Mexes and with Cisse. I expect there to be speculation every week. I can dismiss this.

"I am happy with the squad we have and I am concentrating on the remainder of this season. We will do our best to get into the Champions League.

"Now is not the time to be looking ahead to next season. I'm not preparing for that yet because we still have a job to do this season."
