Dalglish keen to succeed Rafa

Kenny Dalglish is desperate to return as Liverpool's new manager, according to his son Paul.

The club legend has been mentioned as a possible short-term successor to Rafael Benitez at Anfield with the Reds currently up for sale.

Dalglish, who managed Liverpool for six years between 1985-91, is currently employed as the club's academy boss and could step up to the first team at short notice.

That, according to Paul, is an appealing prospect for the 59-year-old Scot.

Liverpool are on the lookout for a new manager after parting company with Benitez by mutual consent on the back of a disappointing 2009-10 season.

"I just think that hopefully he does get it because I know how much he wants it," the former Liverpool reserves striker and now Tampa Bay Rowdies coach told the Liverpool Echo.

"To be honest with you it would be an unbelievable story for my dad to be going back.

"Some people say, well what happens if it doesn't work? He's been out of the game for 10 years.

"My question is, what if it does work? What person loves Liverpool more than my dad?

"Who would Liverpool fans love to see have success more than my dad? Nothing could make my family more proud. I'd love to see it happen."
