The Express have reported that the former Scottish international may be set to play a key part in Rodger’s backroom shakeup at Anfield.
The club have offloaded Mike Marsh and Colin Pascoe, and brought in Sean O’Driscoll as the Northern Irish manager attempts to find the perfect combination off the pitch to support his superstars on it.
McAllister may be the next piece of the jigsaw, with Rodgers understood to be looking for someone with existing connections to the club to come in and make a big impact over the coming campaign.
The 50-year-old signed for Liverpool in 2000 following spells with Leeds United, Leicester City, Coventry and his hometown club, Motherwell.
He enjoyed two successful years on Merseyside, playing a key role in Gerard Houllier’s quintet-winning campaign.
He returned to Coventry in 2002 before ending his career two years later.
Subsequently, McAllister has featured in a coaching capacity with Aston Villa, Leeds, Middlesbrough and with Coventry.
