Kenny Dalglish admits his 'disappointment' in the departure of Damien Comolli and insists that the pair had a "fantastic" relationship.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has revealed that he was behind all of the Reds' signings as opposed to the departing Damien Comolli, but says that he is sad to see him go.

The Premier League outfit announced the departure of the director of football, who brought in the likes of Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing and Andy Carroll - all of whom have been criticised for failing to make an instant impact at Anfield.

"I had a fantastic working and personal relationship with Damien since he came here," said Dalglish. "It is disappointing but I suppose there is not much in football which comes as a surprise.

"He has been really helpful in every transfer target that we've gone for. Everyone who has come into the club since Damien has been here was of my choice.

"Once I made the choice who I wanted Damien went away and did a fantastic job of bringing them in. It's sad to see anyone leave the football club and he goes with my best wishes."

Comolli has revealed that he will return to France for "family reasons".
