Liverpool have refused to confirm that Kenny Dalglish is still the manager of the club, according to ESPN and BBC Sport, admid speculation suggesting the Reds boss has left the club.

Dalglish was in Boston on Monday, with assistant coach Steve Clarke, to meet Fenway Sports Group to review the season.

Reports today suggest club owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner are not satisfied with Dalglish’s reign at Anfield so far, which began when he took over as caretaker boss from Roy Hodgson last January.

Rumours have spread like wildfire over the last few days following Liverpool finishing the season in 8th place in the Premier League.

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has been linked to the Anfield hot seat, and there was even “sightings” of Rafa Benitez near FSG Headquarters on Twitter.

A statement from the club is expected shortly. The Mirror have reported there should be some news around 4pm this afternoon (Tuesday).

UPDATE: Kenny Dalglish has returned to England today and goes on a family holiday on Wednesday. Steve Clarke, meanwhile, spent the evening in Boston and attended the Red Sox baseball game with Werner and Henry, before flying to Miami for a planned holiday.

It is likely the meeting was brief as it was moved forward, with a more stringent review at a later date when Henry and Werner return to Merseyside.
