Liverpool boss Dalglish tribute to Sunderland fans over Henderson welcome

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has praised Sunderland fans for their welcome to Jordan Henderson on Saturday.

It was Henderson's first appearance at his old club since joining Liverpool last summer.

Dalglish said: "I think it's a great credit to Sunderland fans that they did. They were very mature in their approach to it.

"He's a local boy, it's the only other club he's played for. Most of the players they had the other day were brought from another club, so they shouldn't be upset when somebody leaves the club.

"It was very respectful and honourable they gave him a big round of applause."
