Liverpool sack Dalglish

Liverpool has confirmed that Kenny Dalglish has left the club. In a statement on the Liverpool FC website the club said:

Fenway Sports Group (FSG) and Liverpool Football Club announced that Kenny Dalglish is to leave his post today as Manager after having his contract terminated.

After a careful and deliberative review of the season, the Club came to the decision that a change was appropriate. It is not a decision that was reached lightly or hastily.



Football journalists react to Dalglish's expected departure


Kenny has gone. Bloody hell. Really need to see evidence of the big plan from FSG now. #LFC


So Kenny Dalglish has gone and as of now, Fenway's Liverpool have no manager, director of football, head of press, or new stadium plan #lfc


Some suggesting #LFC picked a good day to bury bad news under England squad selection. Tomorrow back pages will suggest otherwise
