Dalglish: No news on Reds deal

The Scot returned to the Anfield hot-seat in January, answering an

SOS call from the club following their decision to remove Roy

Hodgson from the role. A former fans’ favourite from his playing

days, Dalglish inherited the reins two decades after his previous

spell as boss came to an end. He enjoyed considerable success

during his first stint as coach, between 1986 and 1991, and has

sprinkled his magic dust on the Reds once more. Results have

improved dramatically since he replaced Hodgson, with there still a

chance that Liverpool could secure a top-five finish this season.

The Anfield faithful are hoping Dalglish will be kept on for the

foreseeable future, with his current deal only set to run until the

end of the season. It is expected that Liverpool’s owners, Fenway

Sports Group, will offer him an extended stay, but for now no

agreement has been put in place. Dalglish said: “I have nothing to

say and nothing to discuss. When we have some news, I will tell

you. “There is nothing to be announced. For me, it is an honour to

be here and an honour to have been asked. “I said if I could come

back and help I would do. They asked me and I have come and if I

helped and the supporters have enjoyed it, then so have I.” The

Liverpool fans showed their support for Dalglish once again during

Saturday’s rousing 5-0 demolition of Birmingham and the 60-year-old

is flattered by their ongoing show of faith. He said: “It is

humbling when they chant my name, but it would be better if they

chanted the players’ names as they are doing the business on the

pitch.”
