Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard has backed rumours that Anfield legend Kenny Dalglish could return to the club and work with boss Rafa Benitez. Speaking to The Mirror, Gerrard said, "My first response to the news was, 'Great, get him in now' because the man is a legend.

"It's a great idea to get Kenny in because it would give the club a massive lift.

"Put it this way, if I was a young player again and a number of clubs wanted to sign me, if Kenny Dalglish came to me and asked me to sign for Liverpool then there is only one place I would go."
