Kenny Dalglish has backed Craig Bellamy to be a success at Liverpool. "Craig's a fantastic trainer, he has good pace and is always a threat. He always looks like he’s going to do something. He's wiser now and uses his experience really well," said the boss. "I think he's a better player now than he was when he was 25. I think he's ideal for us and someone who will really help us. "When he came here last time, he said he was a Liverpool fan and had always wanted to play for the club. Now he has that opportunity again. The older you get, the less opportunities you get, and he wanted to grab this one. "Craig hasn't played many games – he's had two internationals and a few reserve friendlies but against Montenegro he was flying in the last minute so I don't think there's any problem with his fitness. If he has to play on Saturday, no problem."
