The veteran campaigner backed under-pressure boss Dalglish after beating Everton at Wembley.
He said: â€œHowever the game went he deserved a bit of slack and even more so now.
â€œWe were on our knees when he came in. We hadnâ€™t won a trophy for six years and we did that.
â€œAnd we hadnâ€™t even played at the new Wembley and now itâ€™s three times in one year.â€
