Carragher sad to see Dalglish go

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher admitted it was a "sad day" to see Kenny Dalglish leave Anfield, but accepts everyone must now be "fully committed" to the challenges ahead.

Long-serving defender Carragher, 34, revealed he had chatted with Dalglish, who was sacked following on Wednesday following a disappointing Barclays Premier League campaign, and would now look to next season and supporting the new manager.

Speaking at the ITV Sport Euro 2012 launch in central London, Carragher said: "I spoke to him just before he was getting on his flight and asked: 'is it Kenny now or gaffer?'. He said 'it is Kenny now'. I am sorry to see him go, but that is football."

He added: "It is a sad day for him, but we respect the owners decision and we have to look forward now.

"I will be fully committed to whoever the manager is."
