PLAYERS: Kenny Dalglish
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
Kenny Dalglish's second stint as Liverpool manager ended Wednesday when he was fired following the club's disappointing eighth-place finish in the Premier League.

''Results in the Premier League have been disappointing and we believe to build on the progress that has already been made, we need to make a change,'' Liverpool chairman Tom Werner said. That decision was taken after Dalglish flew to Boston this week for an end-of-season review with the Boston Red Sox ownership group, which also owns Liverpool.
