– Kenny Dalglish
It has been an honour and a privilege to have had the chance to come back to Liverpool Football Club as Manager. I greatly appreciate the work that Steve, Kevin, the players and all of the staff put in during my time and feel proud that we delivered the Club's first trophy in six years winning the Carling Cup and came close to a second trophy in the FA Cup Final. Of course I am disappointed with results in the league, but I would not have swapped the Carling Cup win for anything as I know how much it meant to our fans and the Club to be back winning trophies.
Kenny Dalglish has been sacked as Liverpool manager after talks with the club's owners in the US yesterday. The Reds won the League Cup this season but finished a disappointing eighth place in the Premier League.
