Reds chief rejects Hodgson claims

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish insists Roy Hodgson cannot blame the club's fans for his demise at Anfield. Dalglish and Hodgson will come up against each for the first time since the former Fulham boss was replaced by the Reds icon in January after just six months at the helm. Hodgson believes his position was not helped by the fact that Reds legend Dalglish openly admitted he wanted the manager's job prior to his appointment. The veteran tactician also claimed he did not have the full support of the Anfield faithful during his ill-fated time on Merseyside.

Dictate

However, Dalglish is adamant the Liverpool fans did not drive Hodgson out of the club. "It is up to the fans how they remember Roy," said Dalglish. "We can't dictate how someone is remembered. "Everybody has their own opinions on what happened so they will have their own feelings and respect. "No Liverpool fan wishes bad on anybody. They want everybody to do the best they can. "If the club does well then everybody is happy."
