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."
