Jamie Carragher has insisted that he is completely committed to Liverpool, despite the club currently going through a changeover of managers.

Carragher is one of many of the Reds' squad who were left disappointed after their performances last season in the league.

While the side won the Carling Cup and made the FA Cup final, Liverpool's owners have made it clear that Champions League participation is of the upmost importance, and though Carragher is sad to see Dalglish go, he wants to fight on and achieve the same goal.

"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," he told the official Liverpool website.

"I am sorry to see him go, but that is football.

"It is a sad day for him, but we respect the owners' decision and we have to look forward now.

"I will be fully committed to whoever the manager is."

Liverpool are desperate to get back into contention for a top four finish, and though they looked to be pushing the big clubs at the turn of the year, the Merseyside club's league form went significantly downhill as the season hit the business end.

Much was blamed on the side's inability to capitalise on their chances, and as Liverpool look for another manager to replace Dalglish, they will be hoping to find someone who is prepared to assure the owners that he can take the side back to Europe.
