50 year old Gary McAllister met with manger Brendan Rodgers on Wednesday and media suggested that the Scottish is going to replace former first team coach Mike Marsh who was sacked as a result for a disappointing season.

The Scot is a fan favourite as played for two seasons at Anfield from 2000 to 2002. He was a key player for Liverpool’s famous cup treble in 2001 and is considered as a legend for the Merseyside club despite of playing only two years at Anfield.

The Scot worked under Houllier as his assistant after hanging up his boots and most recently worked at Aston Villa. He left there in 2011 and has been working as a TV pundit.

News of his arrival will be announced before Liverpool depart for their pre-season tour to the Far East and Australia tomorrow. Liverpool fans will be anticipating the arrival of their former hero back to the club.
