Former Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish insists he will leave Brendan Rodgers to manage the Merseyside club after his return as a non-executive director.

Former Swansea boss Rodgers succeeded the Anfield legend following his sacking 17 months ago, and Dalglish insists that the Northern Irishman is completely fine with his return to the club.

He told Liverpool's website: "The most important person in me coming back was Brendan.

"The manager is more important than I am and his position was more important to me than my position.

 "If you're coming back to help the football club in any way you certainly don't want to come back to hinder.

"We'll be in close proximity but Brendan is in charge of the team 100 per cent."

Liverpool have made an incredibly impressive start to the season and have only suffered one defeat thus far, a 1-0 reverse against Southampton.

Dalglish ended his second spell in charge of the club after 16 months at the helm and has now returned for a third time in order to take a seat on the board.

The Scotsman's time back at Anfield was not without controversy and he came under some heavy criticism for his defence of Luis Suarez in the racism row with Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.
