Jurgen Klopp has branded Sir Kenny Dalglish as the 'soul' and Steven Gerrard as the 'legs' behind Liverpool and their first league title in 30 years.

The Reds were confirmed as Premier League champions for the first time last week, with seven matches still to play this season.

It was the first time since Dalglish led the Reds to glory in the 1989/90 season, and something midfield legend Gerrard never managed during his playing career at Anfield.

And current manager Klopp paid a 'special tribute' to both Dalglish and Gerrard for being two of the guiding lights which helped Liverpool end their drought.

"As well as the current players, I would like to pay special tribute to two of our former players who set many of the standards that all of us have to follow," Klopp wrote in an open letter to the Liverpool Echo.

"Sir Kenny Dalglish is the soul of this club. His understanding of what Liverpool is and what it means to the people is vital to everything that we do. I saw how happy he was after we were confirmed as champions on Thursday and his smile meant so much to me that I can’t put it into words.

"Steven Gerrard is the legs. He carried the club in so many ways as a player and there is no one who deserves this title more than he does.

"Along with Kenny, Steven is a symbol of this club and it is important that at a moment like this that we remember everything that all of our former players and former managers did to help put us in the position that we are in today.

"These are the people who built Liverpool. The same goes for our owners and I cannot speak highly enough of them or what they have done. In modern football you have to have a vision, a strategy and an unshakeable commitment to the cause to stand any chance of being successful.

"On all three fronts, Fenway Sports Group have shown to me that they are leaders in the field. My appreciation for them is absolute."
