Dalglish dashes to watch Celtic full-back

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish made a dash to watch Celtic’s brilliant Honduras left-back Emilio Izaguirre yesterday as he looks to solve his problem position.
Dalglish saw the cavalier World Cup defender in top form – setting up the second goal in the Old Firm win over Rangers at Parkhead – and will be in the race for him this summer.
Izaguirre is also on Manchester United’s wanted list.
But the Merseysiders are looking at him as a first-team player rather than the Old Trafford plan to land him as a squad man.
Dalglish’s spies are also chasing Newcastle’s outstanding Jose Enrique, but Izaguirre is a cheaper alternative if the Toon continue to look for £12million for their defender.
Celtic signed Izaguirre at the start of the campaign in a bargain deal and he has been a revelation for Neil Lennon’s in-form side.
Dalglish has limited options at left-back and would snap up Izaguirre if his former club decide to put him on the market at the end of his debut season.
