New Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has warned his sentimental return to the dugout will not instantly solve all the club's problems and has called for unity as he attempts to turn around a disappointing season.

The 59-year-old admits he is "a lucky boy" to be handed the job until the end of the season after Roy Hodgson paid the price for poor results and an even poorer relationship with fans just six months after replacing Rafael Benitez.

"All I would say is I'm going to do the best I possibly can to try to help the club, but everybody has to pull in the same direction," Dalglish told

"There's no point not being a unified unit. If we pull in different directions we won't get anywhere.

"We won't always be successful, and to be perfectly realistic, I think we have to say 'Let's just start walking before we run'.

"Let's not go crazy here and think the season changes and we're going to sweep everything aside now and go undefeated from now to the end of the season.

"We're perfectly capable of doing it but let's be realistic, let's just go out there and try our best and take things one game at a time.

"I'm really looking forward to it and it'll be a real pleasure for me to be in that dressing room again and on the bench."
