Kenny Dalglish demonstrates exactly the type of tunnel vision that makes Liverpool fans love him so

Never change 'King'

Patrick McCarry

Why let performances, facts, medals and statistics stand in the way of a good team?

Kenny Dalglish is dyed in the wool Liverpool. It is one of the 7,652 facts in the world that we know to be true.

The former Reds player, player/manager and manager could not rescue his beloved club when he returned to the dug-out, in 2011, but he did deliver a League Cup win.

Since he was ejected as Liverpool manager, in May 2012, he has remained close with the club and returned in 2013 as a non-executive director.

The man Liverpool fans call ‘King Kenny’ continues to pen a column for The Mirror. This week, the Scotsman selected his Team of the Season.

To say there are a few biased picks in the XI would be an understatement.

For the record, Liverpool finished sixth in the Premier League, eight points off the Champions League spots and 25 back from league-winning Chelsea.

In Dalglish’s team [plus one sub], Chelsea get five players while Liverpool get four – Martin Skrtel, Raheem Sterling, Philippe Coutinho and Steven Gerrard.

No room for Simon Mignolet? Controversial.
