Dalglish Hails Team Behind Team

Kenny Dalglish today praised the team behind the team as he prepares to celebrate a year since his memorable return to Melwood.

Our most famous No.7 was invited back into the dugout 12 months ago this weekend following the departure of Roy Hodgson from Anfield.

Since then he has transformed the fortunes of the team on the field by bringing unity back to the club where he scored 172 goals in 515 games as a player.

But, speaking to today, Dalglish was quick to exalt those who have stood by his side during the past year.

"It's been busy, especially when the transfer windows have been open," he said. "On the football side of it you can see the progression that's been made on the pitch.

"We've been delighted with the work Steve Clarke's put in - he's been fantastic. Wee Sammy (Lee) was here at the beginning and Kevin Keen has come in since. The support we've had from the people I've mentioned has been fantastic.

"Damien (Comolli) has put in a lot of hard work in the recruitment and selling of players. It's been hectic and a bit eventful at times but I wouldn't have changed it.

"Just being asked to come back - that's my highlight. I was very fortunate to be asked the question and when John (Henry) said he'd like me to stay on, it was equally as much of a highlight.

"I'm delighted to be here and happy with the way things are going, but at the same time I think we can do better."
