Kenny Dalglish

Kenny Dalglish (born March 4, 1951) is a Scottish football player and manager

He was born in Glasgow, Scotland.

Formerly an international football player, most noted for his playing career with Liverpool F.C. and also as a manager who is spectacularly dour in his outlook and does not come across well in television interviews. He has been relatively successful in the managerial role becoming the first manager of a Liverpool team to win the League Championship[?] and F.A. Cup in the same season.

He followed Joe Fagin as manager of the club in the months after the Heysel Stadium disaster in 1985, and was in charge of the club at the time of the Hillsborough disaster in the 1989 FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest F.C.. His dignity and bearing during these tragedies was exemplary.

Dalglish resigned as manager of Liverpool in 1991.

He has subsequently managed Blackburn Rovers F.C.[?], and Newcastle United F.C..

Most recent role to date was as Director of Football at Glasgow Celtic, but resigned after one disastrous season which saw Celtic knocked out of the Scottish FA Cup by lowly Inverness Caledonian Thistle and finish 21 points behind their arch-rivals Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.
