Roy Evans says he would accept a return to Liverpool in the right circumstances.

Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans has responded to a fan and suggested he would be open to returning to the club under the right circumstances.

Quizzed via Twitter, Evans was asked if he would take on an advisory role at the club to a management 'dream team' of Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, and did not exactly dismiss the suggestion.

Evans was manager of Liverpool between 1994 and 1998, departing to make way for Gerard Houllier, and won the League Cup in 94/95.

He now described himself in his Twitter bio as a supporter of the club, and after the Norwich City draw on Sunday afternoon he expressed his frustration with Brendan Rodgers' side's latest result, even though he said he saw reason to be positive.

Norwich were a side Liverpool used to blow away when Luis Suarez played for them; yesterday they rarely looked like running away with the game.

Whether a team of Carragher, Gerrard - who is still playing in the US - and Evans could do any better than Rodgers at present is another matter, but given the club's recent struggles, there may well be supporters who would like to find out.
