Gerrard wants Dalglish at Anfield

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has given a ringing endorsement to the club’s plans to recruit Anfield legend Kenny Dalglish.

The former Reds manager is reportedly being lined up for a return to Anfield in an advisory role with an announcement in the pipeline for next week.

Dalglish admitted he was keen to help out in any capacity and Gerrard has given his backing to the move which will see the former forward divide his time between the club’s academy and first-team training ground at Melwood.

Gerrard said in the Sunday Mirror: "My first response to the news was, 'Great, get him in now' because the man is a legend.

"It's a great idea to get Kenny in because it would give the club a massive lift.

"Put it this way, if I was a young player again and a number of clubs wanted to sign me, if Kenny Dalglish came to me and asked me to sign for Liverpool then there is only one place I would go."
