Jamie Carragher believes the permanent appointment of Kenny Dalglish as Liverpool manager means everything is now in place for the Reds to re-establish themselves as force to be reckoned with.

The Scot joined first-team coach Steve Clarke in penning a three year deal to remain at the helm on Thursday afternoon and the vice captain has joined the growing band of observers to give them both the thumbs-up.

"It's great news for Kenny, for Steve and for the club in general," he said.

"Kenny has done a great job along with Steve and also with the help of Sammy Lee.

"It's all been really positive and it's nice it's all been sorted.

"Kenny is a legend here and he has given everyone a boost since he has been back in charge. With the new owners coming in as well everyone is optimistic about the future.

"We are in decent form, everyone is enjoying being part of it and we want to keep this run going."
