Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has no regrets at taking over from Roy Hodgson despite taking a 'battering' this season.

Hodgson returns to Anfield on Sunday for
the first time since being sacked 15 months ago, and his steady
stewardship of West Bromwich Albion is in stark contrast to the extremes
experienced by Liverpool this season.

Dalglish has guided Liverpool to the Carling Cup, their first trophy since 2006, and booked a place in the FA Cup final. But they have won just five league games at Anfield, and Dalglish and the club were criticised for their handling of the Luis Suarez-Patrice Evra race case.

Dalglish said: 'I was asked to come back here and it was an honour to be asked. There was no hesitation in the decision to come back and, if I was asked tomorrow, I would do exactly the same thing.

'How people are going to judge our season, that's up to them. But I know if they want to batter me, that's fine. As long as the club aren't suffering, that will do for me.'

Liverpool start the day outside the top seven and 36 points behind leaders Manchester United. But Dalglish said: 'I think the club have moved forward really well. We have a longer-term view than five or six games.'
