Dalglish news delights Gerrard

BY foxsports • May 12, 2011

The 60-year-old Scot, who has overseen a significant turnaround in performances in his four months in charge, has signed a three-year contract after weeks of speculation. Confidence levels at Anfield are higher than they have been for months and Gerrard believes they are unlikely to dip with Dalglish now in position and a summer transfer window approaching in which Liverpool are likely to strengthen their squad further. "It is fantastic news and the news everyone connected with the club has been waiting for," said the England international. "Kenny has lifted the place, the supporters, the players and everyone connected with the club and now we can all look forward to a bright future. "Before he came in everyone knew it was a difficult time as results were not going well, but sometimes all you need is a change. The last six months has been a lot more positive. "He is very popular with the players and I think he is a popular guy in general. Everyone knows about his knowledge, his experience and what he has done in the game. "With Kenny signing and a few more signings, I am sure expectations will go through the roof but we just need to continue what we have been doing over the last six months."
