"Kenny Dalglish is a legend and a very important man for this club. I think it says everything about him as a man that he is here to help us and put us back where we belong," Kuyt told the club's official website after the Reds' 1-0 defeat to Howard Webb.
"It is very sad that Roy [Hodgson] has gone because you can never just blame one man. We must all take the blame and perform better.
"It's disappointing to lose a manager like that but a very big plus that we can bring in someone like Kenny. He is a very experienced man and someone who can have a positive impact on the squad.
"The most important thing is to make Liverpool a winning team again."
