Everyone who has come into the club since Damien has been here was of my choice. - Kenny Dalglish

I think the release of Damien Comolli is being used to soften the blow for Kenny Dalglish. If the above quote is true, then Comolli certainly can not be removed due to the signings over the previous months and years. Dalglish says who he wants and Comolli's job is to go get them.
Of course, if he left on his own for family matters, that's a different story.
But I think this ends Kenny's second spell as manager at Liverpool.
He's a great ambassador for a great club.
He's just not the right manager for right now.
This seals Kenny's fate: Kenny Dalglish has Liverpool board's support, says chairman.
