Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy is looking forward to getting the chance to play alongside the 'impressive' Luis Suarez more often. [LNB]The Uruguay international helped him open his account in just his third appearance since re-joining the club in the summer, against Brighton in midweek. [LNB]Bellamy's last competitive goal came for Cardiff on the final day of the npower Championship regular season on May 7.

[LNB]'I managed to link up with Luis Suarez who is such an impressive player and it was a good feeling,' he said. 'It was a nice goal and I was pleased with it.'[LNB] Despite the 32-year-old's reputation for having trouble follow him wherever he goes, Dalglish has had nothing but praise for a player they picked up for nothing after Manchester City agreed to cancel the final year of his contract. [LNB] On target: Bellamy scored his first goal back in Liverpool colours this week[LNB]Bellamy left Anfield in 2007 after just one season but Dalglish believes he has returned with a determination to do better than his first brief spell, in which he scored nine goals. [LNB]'We knew what we were getting when Craig came in. We've said many times before what Craig brings to this football club,' said the Scot. 'He had a year out last year when he played at Cardiff rather than in the Barclays Premier League and I think we are getting the benefit of that because he has got a hunger to come in and impress. [LNB]'He's got a desire because maybe he went away with a bit of unfinished business the last time he left here. So he's got a desire to relight that and we'll get the benefit of it. [LNB] Unfinished business: The Welshman could have a point to prove at Anfield[LNB]'He'll make a contribution to the football club over the length of his contract and hopefully last night was just the beginning for him. [LNB]'He loves playing football and is really enthusiastic. He wants to do well and we'll help him to do that all that we can.' [LNB][LNB]
