The Scot’s position at the club has been up in the air this week after reported fall outs with owner Vincent Tan, and the Malaysian businessman is alleged to have told him to step down or be sacked.

However, despite the ongoing tensions, Mackay has insisted that he not walk away after the fans stayed behind after the final whistle on Saturday to express their support for him.

“I reiterate 100% that I absolutely will not be resigning from the football club,” said Mackay.

“I am a proud man to lead this team. Why would I want to leave? That is something you will have to ask other people.”

A Luis Suarez inspired Liverpool took Cardiff down during a frenetic first half, but the Welsh outfit showed a vast improvement during the second period.

“I told the players how proud I was of them,” revealed the Scot.

“We were excellent until Luis Suarez showed why he is abut the best player in the world right now.

“I told them not to go under and we stayed in the game. Liverpool will be challenging for the league this year.

“The crowd were our 12th man.”

When asked what he expects Tan’s next move to be, Mackay said: “I do not know what he’ll do. I can only do what I can do. I will not be resigning. I went to the fans at the end like I do every week.

“I love my job and am proud to be the manager here. There is no way I will be walking away from that.”

Malky Mackay is still one of the favourites for the sack ahead of Cardiff City’s home fixture against Southampton with Wincomparator expecting a defeat for the Welsh side.
