Dalglish Returns To Liverpool

Kenny Dalglish has returned to Liverpool 16 months after getting sacked.

The former Liverpool player, regarded as one the best players ever to don a Reds jersey, will return to the club as a non-executive director after he was released from his second stint as manager over a year and a half ago.

The club said in a statement that his new role would ‘allow the ownership and senior management to benefit not just from the Anfield legend's decades of experience, but also his close affinity with supporters’.

Dalglish, himself, said he was delighted to return to the club and was looking towards a positive future in his new role.

“It is an honour and privilege to be asked to return to Liverpool as a director. I have always said if there is anything I could do to help this club I would make myself available - when the call came I had no hesitation,” said Dalglish.

Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers, has also welcomed Dalglish’s return to the club.

“When I met Kenny to discuss this appointment I was struck by the passion and drive he still has in wanting to see Liverpool return to where it should be; one of the most successful clubs in the world,”  said Rodgers.

“We are all together in that goal - owners and supporters, players and management and also icons such as Kenny Dalglish. I want people around us who have this club and what it stands for in their heart.”
