Liverpool legend Steve Nicol says Kenny Dalglish should be handed an extended deal immediately.

Nicol, now head coach of MLS side New England Revolution, told ESPN's Press Pass show there is not "one argument against" removing the caretaker tag from Dalglish's job title.

"It's a results business," he said. "If you look at the results from when [Dalglish] has taken over to right now, you can't lay one argument against him getting the job.

"Ultimately, the players will love it, the fans will love it. I think the club will do the right thing and appoint him. I would be shocked if they aren't talking to him right now."
