Kenny Dalglish has paid tribute to the Liverpool fans for the fantastic support they have given his players, and thanked them for the appreciation shown after a gruelling campaign came to an end at Anfield last night.

The Reds boss was delighted to see so many supporters stay behind after the final whistle of last night's 4-1 Premier League victory over Chelsea, and applaud the squad on their lap of honour around the pitch.

An emphatic win was a fitting tribute to the collection of loyal fans, whose encouragement for the team has not wavered at all this season, despite a number of disappointing home performances, and Dalglish revealed he was pleased to send them home happy.

"It was an excellent performance," he told Liverpool's official website. "It's been seen a few times before here, but the result hasn't always been as positive as that. So the great thing for us is that the performance was matched by a result that they thoroughly deserved.

"Also, the fact that the supporters can get away from the last game of the season with a little bit of a smile on their faces is great. And I think that the way they stayed behind and showed their appreciation speaks volumes for them."

With the disappointment of Saturday's FA Cup final defeat at Wembley against Chelsea still fresh in everyone's minds, it was nice for Liverpool to bounce back with a convincing performance just 72 hours later.

Now Dalglish wants to take the feel-good factor into the final game of the season, when the Reds travel to South Wales to face Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.

"I don't think there's any other place in the Premier League or elsewhere whose supporters would be there to show their appreciation like that," he added.

"For us, we're just pleased, and the players are pleased, that we gave them the performance that they deserved. And that we put a smile on their faces."
