Kenny Dalglish has confirmed that Daniel Agger has returned to training for Liverpool, with the centre-back close to a full recovery from injury.

Agger left the pitch with a fractured rib in Liverpool’s match with Tottenham a week and a half ago, and many feared he would be out for at least three or four weeks.

But now Dalglish insists that Agger is close to being included in the squad once more, along with Glen Johnson, who suffered a hamstring problem.


"Daniel Agger is back training today and Glen Johnson is on his way as well,” Dalglish said.

"Everybody else has trained fully."

After Steven Gerrard made a return to action for Liverpool against Brighton in the Carling Cup, and came on again for the Reds against Wolves the following week, the skipper looks closer than ever to receiving a place in the starting line up.

But Dalglish is still insistent that Gerrard won’t be rushed, with the manager desperate to keep his star midfielder as fit as possible in preparation for the rest of the season.

“The game is not the important thing - Steven Gerrard is more important,” Dalglish explained. “As we've said before, we'll manage Steven as well as we possibly can."

Liverpool play Everton this weekend in the Merseyside derby, and the match will mark Dalglish’s return to Goodison Park for the first time since he managed Liverpool to a 4-4 draw with the Toffees, and resigned days later, in 1991.
