Sir Kenny Dalglish is still having a role in Liverpool training sessions, according to Reds youngster Liam Millar.

The Anfield legend is a non-executive director and is a regular figure around the club, where he has a stand named after him.

The 67-year-old had a second spell as manager before departing in 2012 but he is still a regular visitor to the club’s training facility at Melwood.

And Reds starlet Millar opened up on the Scot’s involvement after completing his loan move to Kilmarnock last week.

He told the Sunday Post: “Kenny Dalglish gets involved in our sessions every now and then. He helps us with our finishing and stuff.

“I’ve trained with the first-team at Liverpool now and again.

“The front three is unbelievable, it’s amongst the best in the world and that makes it so hard to break in.”

Millar made his Killie debut against Hearts on Friday night and also revealed that Dalglish was behind his loan move.

“I’ve heard a lot of good things about Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke from people at Liverpool,” he added.

“Kenny Dalglish was the one who recommended me to him, which is not too bad!

“Everyone says he gets the best out of you and that’s what Steven Gerrard did with me last season.

“Getting first-team football is really important to develop as a young player.”
