Dalglish keen on Liverpool return

The Sunday newspapers claimed the former Scotland international would join Rafa Benitez’s staff at Anfield.

Dalglish told Liverpool’s official magazine: “I was as far removed from the weekend’s speculation about me returning to a role at Liverpool Football Club as it was possible to be, relaxing with the family at Loch Lomond in Scotland. That’s not to say that the Sunday paper stories and TV debate escaped me.

“All I can say at the moment is what I’ve said many times in this column; if I can help Liverpool Football Club in any way, shape or form then I’m in. That’s not a new revelation.

“If I can be of help to the club I love in any capacity then I’m more than happy to play any part that I can. If the manager or the people running the club think there’s a role for me then I’ll fill it happily.

“Similarly, if the club think the best thing for the club is for me to stay out of the way then I’m not going to take offence at that either.

“At the moment, there’s not much more that I can say other than that if and when there’s anything to say to the supporters – the people who keep this club alive – then they will be the first to know.”
