IF there was one word to sum up Kenny Dalglish’s second spell in charge of Liverpool, then “dignity” would probably do just fine.
Forget those offended by his often-brusque responses to inquisitive reporters. Dalglish’s duty of care throughout the last 17 months was to Liverpool, not the media.
It is a hard habit to break. And dignity, clearly, remains one of his strong suits.
Yesterday, he took the time to issue a welcoming tweet to Brendan Rodgers, the man who replaced him as Reds boss.
“Congratulations to Brendan, and good luck to everyone at LFC. Kenny.” it read. It was a classy act. But then what did we really expect?
