Liverpool honour Kenny Dalglish by unveiling Anfield stand in his name

Kenny Dalglish

"I think they have the ideal guy for the football club", Dalglish told the Liverpool Echo.

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was also in attendance alongside Manchester United great Sir Bobby Charlton.

However, the 18-time English champions have won three of their opening seven Premier League games this term to leave Liverpool seven points behind leaders Manchester City.

"They did exactly the same after Hillsborough". 'Away from working, there has never been a problem with him.

Last year, they had a very good record against the top teams and tailed a wee bit against the other teams. He's done fantastically well, brought belief back in every area of the club and I'm sure he'll continue to do that and that belief will grow. He may be criticised for the goals he concedes but his philosophy has always to score more goals than the opposition so I think that's what the fans want to see. You don't speak what happens during the game.

In May, Liverpool announced that they planned to rename a stand at Anfield after Dalglish, one of the club's greatest ever players and two-time manager.

But when he first got the call to go in and see Liverpool owner John Henry, chairman Tom Werner and Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon, Dalglish actually feared the worst.

"John started speaking and I thought, 'Jesus what have I done now?' I thought I was getting the sack again".

'I said to him 'What do you mean?

"He said as well as for the football, it was for the work done with the community with [his wife] Marina and the charity and everything".

Despite the public perception being of a frosty relationship between the two Scots when they were in charge of England's two most successful clubs in the 1980s and 1990s the former Reds boss insists the pair are friends and always have been - despite Ferguson succeeding in his quest to "knock Liverpool off their perch".
