Kenny Dalglish has welcomed Liverpool's return to Istanbul. The Reds visit the city where possibly their greatest European triumph took place tonight for a match with Galatasary. Although the game is only a friendly, Dalglish says the return to Istanbul will bring back plenty of great memories for the Reds. "It's a great game for us and everyone is looking forward to it," said the boss. "It's a shame we're not playing at the Ataturk as that stadium will always have a special place in everyone's hearts. "But everyone has great memories of Istanbul after what was achieved here back in 2005. "That was a fantastic achievement. "This game is only a friendly but we will try to get the maximum we can out of the game. "We're playing at a new stadium and Galatasaray will pose a decent test for us."
