Liverpool could offer former manager Kenny Dalglish a return to Anfield as a club ambassador, according to the Telegraph.

Dalglish was sacked as Liverpool boss in May last year after a disappointing Premier League campaign, although he did lead the side to League Cup glory.

After his departure, the Scot hinted that he would be open to taking up similar role to that which he occupied prior to Roy Hodgson's tenure.

He said at the time: "I said when first approached about coming back as manager that I would always be of help if I can at any time and that offer remains the same."

And the Telegraph reports that Liverpool's principal owner, John W Henry, is keen to offer Dalglish a role on Merseyside.

"He is in many ways the heart and soul of the club. He personifies everything that is good about Liverpool Football Club," Henry said last summer.

"He has always put the club and its supporters first. Kenny will always be a part of the family at Anfield."
