Brendan Rodgers has released a statement about his departure from Liverpool Football Club.
It came through the League Managers Association:
"I am, of course, incredibly disappointed to be leaving Liverpool Football Club. It has been both an honour and a privilege to manage one of the game’s great clubs for the last three years.
“I have worked every day to represent the club to the best of my ability, to develop both individual players and a team that the club’s magnificent fans can be proud of.
"There have been some very memorable moments during my time at Liverpool and I would like to thank all of the players for their hard work and commitment.
"The current squad is one in transition, but they have some real talent and are showing a strong sense of togetherness. I expect to see them continue to grow and develop over the coming weeks and I wish them and my successor well for the rest of the season.
“Liverpool has a magnificent football heritage and I have nothing but respect and admiration for the history, tradition and values that make the city and the club so exceptional. "As well as my players, I would like to thank everyone connected with the club; Fenway Sports Group, the Liverpool Directors, in particular Ian Ayre, my coaching staff, the staff throughout the club, the volunteers, the Academy staff and its young players and of course the amazing Liverpool fans for their unwavering support, passion and dedication which has made my time at the club so special.
“Finally, I would like to give a special mention to John W. Henry, Tom Werner and Mike Gordon. They gave me this great opportunity and even though we will no longer be working together I am sure our relationship and friendship will continue into the future.”

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted he will leave the club if the owners want him to.
The Liverpool boss was speaking after his side lost 6-1 at Stoke on the final day of the season to finish a disappointing sixth in the Barclays Premier League.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted summer signing Mario Balotelli will never match Luis Suarez's Anfield impact.
Rodgers backed the Italy striker to shrug off "unfair" criticism and end his six-game Premier League drought however, despite Balotelli missing another glorious chance in Sunday's 3-2 win at QPR.
The Liverpool boss said Balotelli's early Reds career has been blighted by comparisons with Uruguay forward Suarez, who completed a summer transfer to Barcelona.
Liverpool sneaked to victory in west London courtesy of own goals from Caulker and Richard Dunne, plus a deflected effort from Philippe Coutinho.
Eduardo Vargas twice equalised at the death for the impressive hosts, only for Sterling to force Caulker's own goal and keep QPR at the bottom of the Premier League.
The most important thing for me is his work, the guy's doing his best; he's working really hard.
The criticism of him has been unfair, yes.
And that's because he's probably seen as the direct replacement for Luis, and as I said before, Luis was irreplaceable and a real world-class talent.
