Liverpool sack Kenny Dalglish
LIVERPOOL have sacked manager Kenny Dalglish, after a disappointing season.
Dalglish brought the League Cup to Anfield this season but endured a difficult campaign in the Premier League, winning just six home matches as the Reds finished eighth.
He also saw big-money signings Andy Carroll, Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing fail to shine on Merseyside.
The announcement comes just 24 hours after the Scot returned from a meeting with principal owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner in the United States.
“Fenway Sports Group and Liverpool Football Club announce that Kenny Dalglish is to leave his post today as manager after having his contract terminated,” said a joint statement.
“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.
