Liverpool legend Dalglish: Players need club stability

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish says the club's stability assisted their end-of-season run of form.

In his column for liverpoolfc.tv, Dalglish wrote: "There was a great deal of improvement in many different areas of the football club over the course of the season and that augurs well for the future.

"Off the pitch, the relationship between George Gillett and Tom Hicks appears to have improved, as has the owners' rapport with Rafa Benitez, which, significantly, led to the manager signing a new contract with the club.

"Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres and several other key players have also agreed to extend their contracts, so away from the field a lot of good work has been done. The whole club appears to have genuine stability now and that is obviously very positive.

"I feel our excellent run at the end of the season reflected the solidity at the club. I believe this steadiness, allied with the fact the players showed a real determination to try and win the title, helped us kick-on in the final stages of the campaign and embark on that incredible goalscoring run.

"I can tell you, it's always best for a player to know his club is on a stable footing."
