Martin Skrtel: rejects 'unacceptable' contract offer
Martin Skrtel has thrown his Liverpool future into doubt after branding the club’s recent contract offer ‘unacceptable’.

The central defender, who joined from Zenit St Petersburg in 2007, started 48 of Liverpool’s 58 matches in all competitions last season and has 12 months remaining on his existing Anfield deal.

Skrtel is understood to have been in talks over extending his contract for several months and the 30-year-old indicated he turned down the recent performance-based offer because it does not reflect his age and value to the club.
