Reports: Dalglish waits to hear his fate after talks with Liverpool's owner

The Times (£) is reporting that Kenny Dalglish has returned to Merseyside following talks with Liverpool's owner, Fenway Sports Group, in Boston.

Talks on the outcome of the season are said to be continuing: Dalglish is still waiting to hear his fate.

Contrary to speculation that surfaced following the summit, Dalglish did not resign and nor was he sacked with the outcome of the talks being a mundane acceptance from all parties that the process of reviewing the season will continue.
