Dalglish open to Reds return

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish has admitted he would be keen on returning to working for the club. Widespread reports last weekend suggested Liverpool were planning to offer the former Reds manager a new role at Anfield. It has been suggested Dalglish, who is widely regarded as the club's greatest ever player, would join Rafa Benitez's backroom staff with a specific role in monitoring the club's youth development The Scot has opened the door to return to Anfield by revealing he would be happy to help the club. "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," Dalglish told the club's official magazine. "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. Any capacity "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." Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has backed a possible return for Dalglish insisting he would support any move to bring the former Reds boss back to the club. "Get him in," Gerrard told Sky Sports 1 when asked about Dalglish possibly returning to the club. "It is great to see him around the place from my point of view. "Get him in, give him any job just to have him about. Superb "He's superb and he is a hero of mine so to see him everyday will give me a boost, so whatever it will do for everybody else will be great." Gerrard also feels the presence of Dalglish at Liverpool can only enhance their chances of luring the best young talent to Anfield. "Well if I weren't at Anfield and I got the chance to meet Kenny Dalglish I know where I would be signing."
