Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool's US-based owners, will doubtless hope to benefit from Dalglish's enduring popularity with fans who still chant his name at Anfield.

London: Liverpool great Kenny Dalglish has returned to Anfield as a member of the board 17 months after being sacked as Reds manager, the Premier League side announced Friday.

Former Scotland striker Dalglish, who first arrived at Liverpool from Celtic in 1977 and is widely regarded as the Merseysiders' best player of all-time, is to become a non-executive board director and will take up his position with immediate effect.

"It is an honour and privilege to be asked to return to Liverpool as a director of the club," said Dalglish, fired in May 2012 after a disappointing end to the season in his second spell in charge, in a Liverpool statement.
