Kenny Dalglish’s return as Liverpool manager didn’t go according to plan.

In 1985, Dalglish became player-manager of Liverpool and guided the club to their first league and cup double in his first season. Before his departure in 1991, the Glaswegian guided Liverpool to two further league titles and another FA Cup.

He left a well-respected hero – especially for his actions and role supporting the Hillsborough families in their campaign for justice.

After Roy Hodgson was sacked in January 2011, Dalglish returned to Liverpool and whilst he led the Reds to a League Cup win and to the FA Cup final, he was axed after just one full season in charge. His downfall was largely down to his failure of gaining a Champions League spot and in the wake of Luis Suarez’s racism charge.
