Police have spoken to party officials about allegations of inappropriate towards women behaviour by the peer.
Mr Clegg told LBC Radio that he had wanted a change when Lord Rennard quit but the "immediate reason" for his going was "ill health".
Lord Rennard denies the accusations, said to involve at least 10 women.
