Former Liverpool first-team coach Steve Clarke admits he was saddened by the sacking of Kenny Dalglish as manager last month.

Dalglish paid for the Reds eighth-placed Premier League finish, which saw them 17 points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham.

"I was disappointed for Kenny because that is his club and for him to leave in that way was not very nice for him, so I felt a little bit for Kenny," said Clarke, the new West Bromwich Albion head coach.

"But if you don't achieve the standards or the levels of the people who run the club want you to achieve, you have to pay the price."
