“As a player and a manager, Kenny established his position as a football great. But that is only half the story. His compassion and leadership in the immediate aftermath of Hillsborough brought great solace to the families of the 96.
“His support of the campaign for justice since 1989 has been unfailing and inspirational and has given him a status that goes far beyond that of a mere sporting figure.
"However, the return of Kenny Dalglish is not about the past. We are building for the future.
“From the dressing room to the boardroom, we are creating a structure that will take Liverpool back to the top. It is not an easy task.
"Kenny brings the sort of intelligence, experience and knowledge that will help us reach our goals.
“Tom (Werner), Ian (Ayre), Brendan (Rodgers) and I along with every single Liverpool supporter, staff member and player want to welcome back Kenny with the same warmth and depth of feeling that he has shown for his club over these decades.”
