Liverpool legend Sir Kenny Dalglish is on the verge of recovering from coronavirus with daughter Kelly Cates revealing “he’s starting to go crazy, so we know he’s better.”
Dalglish, 69, was admitted to Southport and Ormskirk General Hospital a week ago for gallstone treatment when he was assessed for Covid-19 and returned positive despite absence symptoms.
Dalglish, who is widely regarded as the greatest Liverpool player of all time and has won all national trophies for two periods as a manager, left the hospital on Sunday and is now recovering at home.

Her daughter, Sky Sports presenter, Kelly, posted a health update, telling BBC Radio 5 Live, “He’s fine.” My mom has a patio that needs to be jet washed so we need it and as soon as possible.
‘It is good. It’s not quite 100% yet but it’s not too bad at all.
Former Scottish striker Dalglish won the Scottish champion title four times with Celtic before joining Liverpool in 1977.
He took advantage of a trophy-laden spell at Anfield, winning eight league titles and three European cups as a player and manager.

Dalglish is also well known for driving the Blackburn Rovers to the Premier League title in 1995.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said it was a “shock” when he learned that Dalglish had coronavirus and that it was “very good news” when he left the hospital.
Dalglish praised the tireless work of doctors and nurses in the fight against the pandemic over the weekend.
“They were absolutely great,” said Dalglish. “As a nation, we are very fortunate to have them. I wish them luck in their work.
“It is never easy to be hospitalized, but when you are looked after by our NHS staff, it is very comforting. You know you’re in good hands.
