Anfield legend Terry McDermott has called for Kenny Dalglish to be signed by Liverpool as quickly as possible, after the manager has enjoyed unprecedented success with the club.
“I’m delighted for Kenny, he’s one of the great guys in English football,” McDermott told talkSPORT.
“It’s just a matter of time before [Liverpool] actually give him the job because if they don’t all hell would break loose.
“He’s done a fantastic job and got the players believing in themselves again.”
Since Dalglish took the reigns at Liverpool in January, the Anfield club has gone from strength to strength, and now look a good chance to clinch a place in the Europa league after looking down the barrel of the relegation zone in the first half of the season.
Liverpool have amassed the second highest amount of points since Dalglish took over the managerial position, with leaders Manchester United the only side ahead of them.
“Kenny has turned the club around and got the players playing for him,” McDermott said.
“They [the board] should announce [Dalglish's contract] straight away.
“They should say he’s staying for two or three years and give him the money he needs to bring players in, because they do need that. They need a fresh impetus.
“If they give him money he’ll buy the right players and they could be Champions League material next year.”
Today Jamie Carragher said that with Dalglish at Anfield, the mood at Liverpool has been well and truly on the improve.
"It hasn't been a great 18 months really for the club, it has been tough,” Carragher said.
"Now, though, we can start to enjoy ourselves and go into games expecting to win."
