Kenny Dalglish insists he does not regret returning to Liverpool as manager even if it damages his reputation at Anfield.
The Kop legend has seen his position come under scrutiny after a run of five defeats in six Premier League games left Liverpool floundering in the race to finish in the top four.
Dalglish, who is preparing to return to former club Newcastle this weekend, has no regrets about returning to the Anfield hotseat despite the criticism he has received and the calls from some quarters for a new manager to be appointed.
"I have said it was an honour to be asked to come back," Dalglish said. "It was unfortunate in the circumstances because Roy [Hodgson] had lost his job.
"But I don't see any reason to change my opinion now."
Dalglish admits Liverpool may need to change their approach if they are to get their league campaign on track, calling on his side to be more ruthless.
"Maybe our education in how to win a game means we don't need to be the attractive passing team we want to be," added Dalglish.
"Sometimes we've got to be more ruthless - it's all part and parcel of learning.
"We can win a game but you've also got to learn how not to lose one. We are good enough to win every game but maybe we've got to learn as well as the players and pass that education on to them.
"But I think we are good enough to beat everybody in the league. We knocked the teams who are first and second in the league out of both domestic cup competitions in January."
