Barnes keen to see Dalglish take charge at Liverpool

Liverpool icon John Barnes has joined his ex-teammates in calling for Kenny Dalglish to be installed as manager.

The Scot has himself been tipped as a potential replacement - possibly on an interim basis while owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks look to sell the club.

But Barnes told BBC Radio Five Live: "Whoever comes in should come in now and say 'I'm the manager of Liverpool' - not short term, and you can't really say long term because as a manager you know two years and you're not going to be there.

"I think Kenny would do a fantastic job, but I've no idea (whether he wants to go back into management)."
