The sacking by Liverpool FC of manager Kenny Dalglish means that it has been a thoroughly dreadful end to a mostly disappointing season for most fans and the man himself the supporters long called "King Kenny".

After the owning group, FSG, made the decision to part ways with Dalglish, much store was made in their official statement on the poor Premier League position for the past season, with the Reds ending the campaign in eighth place.

A League Cup victory earlier in the season, Liverpool's first piece of silverware in six years and another domestic final, in which the Reds were beaten, were not deemed to be evidence enough of an improvement on last season.

The board of Liverpool wanted Champions League football this season after spending heavily last summer, and ultimately, it is the failure to deliver this which has cost Dalglish his job.
