Oldham Athletic boss Paul Dickov is excited about their FA Cup tie with Liverpool.

Dickov is delighted for the fans to have such a game to look forward to.

"Like any youngster growing up in Scotland, Kenny Dalglish was a big hero," said the former Manchester City and Blackburn striker. "I've still got a box of tapes somewhere of all the goals he scored.

"I met him when I was a 16-year-old at Arsenal. I shook his hand but was so in awe I couldn't speak. For me, just to stand there with him in the opposite dug-out will be a proud occasion. This is our thank you to the fans. The support we're getting is quite humbling. It's brought a real buzz back to this club."
