Kenny Dalglish has backed the appointment of Roy Hodgson as the new Liverpool manager.
Dalglish was a contender to replace Rafael Benitez at Anfield but has given his approval to the former Fulham boss, who took over at the Barclays Premier League club yesterday.
The Scot said in the Daily Mail: “I look very favourably on the appointment.
“I have known Roy a long time and have a great respect for him.
“We’ve not had detailed conversations yet but my interests are in Liverpool.”
