Former Liverpool striker Kenny Dalglish rubbishes suggestions that the Premier League season should be rendered null and void.

Former Liverpool player and manager Kenny Dalglish has rubbished suggestions that the season should be rendered null amid the coronavirus suspension period.

All matches in England's top flight are currently suspended until early April due to the outbreak of the virus, with Liverpool currently 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

The 69-year-old, who scored 169 goals in 502 appearances for Liverpool, has claimed that it would be "out of order" for the season not to be completed.

"What must definitely not happen is for the 2019-20 campaign to be declared null and void," Dalglish said in The Sunday Post. "That would not be fair, and any person with football at heart would admit that would be totally out of order.

"Would any person without an agenda really think it would be the most-sensible outcome to deny Liverpool their chance of winning the title after doing fantastically well in their 29 league games so far to build up a 25-point lead over Manchester City with nine games remaining?

"Of course not. Nobody can allow the hard work to count for nothing. So let's do away with any of this talk, and try to use our time and energy wisely.

"I've been in football for more than 50 years and I know what goes into it. The season must be completed."

West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady recently called for the season to be registered null and void as COVID-19 continues to sweep across the globe.
