Rush: Players are inspired by Kenny

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has received plenty of recognition for the wonderful job he has carried out since his return to Anfield in January.

And so he should, because the Reds' revival over the second half of the season epitomises the undying spirit, confidence and determination instilled by 'King' Kenny and his team of coaching staff.

Dalglish has come into yet more praise, this time from another Kop legend, his former Liverpool strike partner Ian Rush – who has been overwhelmed by the club's upturn in form.

"You can see people smiling around Anfield again now, and people have a spring in their step because the atmosphere is so positive, and that's because Kenny has a spring in his step," said Rush.

"He is enjoying himself, and he loves being back, and that is transmitted to the players and the people at the club.


"He knows everything there is to know about the club. He knows exactly what it means to represent Liverpool Football Club."

Liverpool's form over the past 15 games since Dalglish took over would see them sat 2nd in the table behind Chelsea – the only club to have accumulated more points (2), over the same period.

Rush is adamant that Kenny has been the inspiration, and believes the brand of football now being played, which is reminiscent of the Liverpool of old, is the right way for the club moving forward.

"Kenny has made Liverpool a football club again, and one that wants to win trophies – and he has made the team one that people enjoy going to watch.

"His philosophy has always been to play attacking, positive, winning football.

"Players are inspired by that and by him, and they're giving their all. Kenny is back with a twinkle in his eye, and a belief in what he is doing."
