Kenny Dalglish has been sacked by Liverpool following the club's poor league season. The Scotsman came to Liverpool's rescue in January 2011 when he agreed to manage them until the end of the season. With the club struggling in the Premier League, King Kenny inspired them to a 6th place finish, which earlier in the season had been out of the question. In May, as widely expected, Dalglish signed a new three-year contract with Liverpool, much to the fans and players delight.
However, they endured a mixed 2011/12 season, finishing down in 8th, behind local rivals Everton. The club lost 14 games in the league, which is simply unacceptable. Winning the Carling Cup and finishing as FA Cup runners-up was unfortunately not enough to save him from the sack.
Where to start? As well as winning a plethora of medals as a player, Dalglish has continued his success into management. During his first spell as Liverpool boss Dalglish won the Old First Division three times, the FA Cup twice and the Charity Shield on four occasions - all within just six years.
Dalglish join Blackburn Rovers in 1991 and won the Premier League with the club in 1995. During his brief stint at Celtic in 2000 he guided them to the League Cup. If anyone can spur Liverpool onto their long awaited 19th league title then it is Dalglish.
