Liverpool captain Henderson: Honour to accept Prem trophy from Dalglish

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is delighted he'll be presented the Premier League trophy by Sir Kenny Dalglish.

The Reds will lift the top-flight honour for the first time in 30 years after their match at Anfield against Chelsea.

There will be a special ceremony on the Kop in which Dalglish, who is iconic on Merseywide for his trophy-laden career as a player and then a manager, will hand Henderson the prize.

"He's an iconic figure at this football club, a huge person who we all love," Henderson told BBC Breakfast.

"I know how difficult it must be as they've waited for so long for this club to win the league and it's huge.

"Unfortunately they can't gather outside the stadium for the health and safety of the country, and we need to protect the NHS staff who have been working tirelessly over the past few months."
