Legends welcome Dalglish

Clubs legends Phil Neal and Tommy Smith today welcomed the return to the dugout of Kenny Dalglish.
The King has assumed managerial control until the end of the season following the departure of Roy Hodgson.
Neal, who played alongside Dalglish in three European Cup triumphs, said: "Results have been up and down into the New Year, starting with Newcastle.
"We should have propelled ourselves up the table and we didn't do that. And with the fixtures coming thick and fast in the New Year now, we have got to be a unit.
"Kenny would be the first man to stand in and maybe create a bit of the old type of togetherness really, along with the fans.
"Maybe we'll have a better New Year."
Neal added: "We are not looking to the past with this appointment.
"Can Kenny prove himself once more? He's a quality person and a quality former player. He knows all about togetherness.
"If Kenny picks us up and charges us up to where we want to be - challenging - then good luck to him.
"He's still got the spirit within him and he's got the experience. He knows what the club was built on all those years ago."
Former defender Tommy Smith also also welcomed the return of Dalglish.
He said: "I think it is a good move and a necessary one.
"This is now a new chapter for Liverpool FC and let's hope Kenny Dalglish can get the team playing the way a Liverpool team should be - and begin to get us back where we belong."
