The Scot flew back to Britain yesterday after meeting principal owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner amid a growing crescendo of rumours about his future.
Speculation reached fever pitch on internet and social networking sites yesterday, with unsubstantiated claims ranging from him being sacked to resigning. With no statement forthcoming from either Fenway Sports Group or the club the rumour mill ran wild. Without a public show of support from FSG Dalglish’s position will remain a subject for debate. But there has perhaps been too much being read into his trip to America, fed no doubt by the fact FSG’s restructuring at the club has already led to the departure of director of football Damien Comolli, head of sports science Peter Brukner and head of communications Ian Cotton in the last month.
With two years remaining on his contract, Dalglish, along with coach Steve Clarke, flew out after Sunday’s defeat to Swansea to answer some testing questions from Henry and Werner about what progress was being made with their £200million investment.
