Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has hailed Kenny Dalglish's impact at the club.
The Reds have endured a troublesome season, which saw manager Roy Hodgson axed in January after just a few months at the helm.
Dalglish was brought in to steady the ship and take the club forward, and Lucas admits he has done a great job.
"Kenny has been very good, not just for me, but for all the players and fans," he told Sky Sports News.
"He is really important for the club and everyone is enjoying our time with him.
"Everyone can see the atmosphere is very good at the moment. The results at the moment are also better than before.
"We know how important it is for the club and for the fans so we believe we can do a lot more.
"We now have just eight games left to play and hopefully we can finish well this season and then see what happens. Then we can look to the next season."
Lucas is hoping he can upset Dalglish this weekend by beating Scotland as he will face them for Brazil on Sunday.
"It will be a very important game for us," he said. "We lost the last games so the pressure is a bit higher.
"But we have a good team and hopefully we will play a very good match.
"Hopefully we will play with confidence and I am sure we will have a big opportunity to win and be confident for the rest of the games."
Speaking on Dalglish's reaction should Brazil beat Scotland, he added with a smile: "I don't think he will be happy.
"I think he is looking forward to the match as well and we were talking a little bit about the game.
"It is an important game for Scotland because they have a lot of respect for Brazil, but we know how difficult it will be because they have good players and play with more confidence.
"Hopefully we will have a very good match and win. That is the most important thing at the moment."
