Who is the greatest Liverpool legend of all time? We examine the best reds of all time, including Kenny Dalglish, Mohamed Salah, and Kevin Keegan.

Who is the greatest Liverpool legend ever? From Kevin Keegan and Kenny Dalglish to Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, we dig into the greatest reds of all time

Liverpool is one of the biggest clubs in the history of English football. 20 league titles, seven Champions League victories and countless other trophies tell the story of a club that has been winning for decades.

And with such success, the Reds have spawned one legend after another in English football. Exciting and fun fiestas are filled with the jewels of the sport, making Merseyside young lads and exciting foreign gems as well known. So who’s the greatest to ever captivate the Kop? Let’s go through the list…

50.Steve Nicol

A faithful witness to Liverpool’s glory years in the 1980s, the Scottish defender won five league titles, three FA Cups and the 1984 European Cup at Anfield in 14 years.

Nicol was ahead of his time in providing a goal threat from right back, netting a total of 36 goals for the Reds, including a hat-trick against Newcastle in 1987.

49. Xabi Alonso

The Spanish playmaker was a key figure in Istanbul’s miracle, scoring Liverpool’s equalizer to complete the return to the Champions League final against AC Milan from a 3-0 deficit at halftime. time at 3-3 before the Reds triumphed on penalties.

The agile midfielder won the FA Cup the following season and also scored some of the most memorable goals in Liverpool’s long history thanks to his exceptional ability from distance.

48. Steve McManaman

A childhood fan of Everton, McManaman more than made up for his early allegiances with his performances on the pitch at Liverpool, having progressed through the youth sections of Anfield.

The winger made the first team as a teenager in 1991/92, won the FA Cup that season and never looked back as he started providing plenty of assists and scoring regularly . A League Cup title followed in 1994/95 and by the time he joined Real Madrid in 1999, McManaman had established a reputation as one of England’s finest midfielders.

47. James Milner

He may not be the most brilliant player in the world, but Milner’s importance to Liverpool’s revolution under Jurgen Klopp cannot be denied.

His versatility, leadership and consistency set him apart, but the hard-working midfielder also became the first player in Champions League history to provide nine assists in a season in 2018/19 as the Reds took storming the final.

A Premier League, Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup winner, who even played left-back for a season, it’s no wonder he’s often cited as one of England’s most underrated players.

46.Tommy Lawrence

Bill Shankly’s first choice goalkeeper Lawrence was the rock behind two league titles and an FA Cup in the 1960s.

He also boasted perhaps one of the best nicknames in the club’s history, being affectionately dubbed ‘the flying pig’ by fans for an agility that belied his 14-stone frame.

45. Albert Stubbins

Stubbins, one of Liverpool’s best players of the immediate post-war period, also earned him a cover for the Beatles’ ‘Sergeant Pepper’ album, where he was the only footballer to appear. Having opted to join the Reds rather than Everton for a coin, the forward’s decision paid off as he finished his debut season as the league’s top scorer, with 24 goals to win Anfield the title, their first league title in 24 years.

44.John Aldridge

Signed in to replace Ian Rush, Aldridge coped with that tough task and is regarded as one of Liverpool’s all-time top goalscorers despite spending just two and a half seasons with the club.

The young Reds fan scored 26 goals in his first full season as Kenny Dalglish’s side won the 1987-88 title and formed one of the greatest attacking tridents in Liverpool history with John Barnes and Peter Beardsley.

One sore point was a missed penalty in a shock FA Cup final defeat to Wimbledon that year, but he made amends the following season by scoring in a cup final victory over rivals Everton. 43.Fernando Torres

‘El Nino’ ​​enjoyed the most prolific period of his career at Anfield, establishing himself immediately following his record-breaking 2007 transfer from Atletico Madrid.

He became the first Liverpool player since Robbie Fowler 11 years earlier to score 30 goals in a season for the club, becoming the fastest player in Reds history to reach 50 league goals.

His 33 goals in all competitions in 2007-08 were the most by a foreign player in a debut season in England, but Torres’ Merseyside legacy was somewhat marred when he applied for the transfer to national rivals Chelsea in January 2011 .

42. Steve McMahon

McMahon was Kenny Dalglish’s first signing from Liverpool and became the midfield anchor behind three league titles and two FA Cups in the 1980s.

A strong passer and tackler with an eye for the occasional goal – most memorably a 30-year-old screamer against Manchester United – he has earned high praise from Reds royalty in the form of Bob Paisley.

“When Steve McMahon plays well, I always think Liverpool will play well,” said the manager.

41.Gerry Byrne

The ardent defender was a unique club man and one of Bill Shankly’s favourites, who first propelled him into the starting lineup, where he remained for much of the 1960s, winning two league titles. Byrne famously broke his collarbone in the 1965 FA Cup Final after just three minutes, but with substitutions yet to be introduced he struggled to the bitter end as the Reds lifted the famous trophy for the first time in 72 years by beating Leeds United. .

40. The Jimmy Case

Case, a fighting midfielder with a powerful shot, was a fan favorite and played a key role in an era of glory for Liverpool.

A four-time league winner and three-time European champion, who also won UEFA Cup and League Cup medals, Case is also known for his powerful goalscoring, including his superb strike against Manchester United in the Champions League final. the 1977 FA Cup.

39.Michael Owen

Few players got into senior football as quickly and disruptively as Owen, who scored on his debut aged 17 and never looked back. Finally, in 2004, after eight years at Anfield, he joined Real Madrid, where a goal was scored every two games. Owen memorably scored two goals in the last seven minutes of the 2001 FA Cup Final, turning the game around and taking the trophy in the year his 24 goals won him an FA Cup, a League Cup and delivered a hat-trick of UEFA Cup for the Merseyside club.

That form earned Owen the Ballon d’Or, making him the first Liverpool player to win European football’s biggest individual prize and England’s first winner since Kevin Keegan in 1979.

38.Sammy Lee

A Liverpool boy, Lee rose through the ranks at his hometown club and became a key player in a golden age for the Reds.

The small but strong midfielder won four league titles in five years between 1981 and 1986 and won the European Cup twice. 37.John Toshack

Bill Shankly brought Toshack to Anfield from Cardiff City for a club record fee of £111,000 in 1970, and the forward soon struck a partnership with Kevin Keegan which helped him win two league titles, the European Cup, the FA Cup and two UEFA titles. Cups in eight years with the club.

Keegan later explained that “he always knew Tosh would win high balls … from then on all I had to do was read which way the ball would go.”

That understanding and expectation was perhaps most evident in the first leg of the 1972-73 UEFA Cup Final when two headers from Toshack set up two goals from Keegan for a 3-0 win that set the Reds on course for an aggregate victory of 3-2 on two legs. .

36. Roberto Firmino

The Brazilian is perhaps the least noticed member of Liverpool’s sensational trio of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane that led the club to consecutive years of Champions League and Premier League glory under Jurgen Klopp.

But that doesn’t diminish his importance to the team, as Firmino’s goals, assists, work rate and energy have played a crucial role in those successes and Klopp has dubbed the striker the ‘engine’ of his team.

35. Jan Molby

Molby is described on Liverpool’s website as “widely regarded as the greatest football passer to ever wear the red shirt”.

That’s certainly high praise, but it’s no surprise for a man whose vision and creativity were behind three league titles for the club and two FA Cup triumphs in the 1980s. The Dane was also prolific from the penalty spot, scoring 42 penalties for the club and missing just three, including netting a hat-trick of penalties against Coventry in 1986.

34. Jordan Henderson

Henderson led Liverpool to domestic, European and global glory in the trophy-laden years of Jurgen Klopp, fielding a star-studded side from midfield with determination and style.

The England international arrived at Anfield from Sunderland in 2011 and succeeded club legend Steven Gerrard as skipper four years later. Sami Ipia.

33. Bruce Grobbelaar

The mustachioed goalkeeper is perhaps best known for the wobbly-legged routine that helped Liverpool beat Roma on penalties in the Italian capital to clinch the 1984 European Cup, but Zimbabwe were a constant presence in the sticks at Anfield throughout the 80s.

In 14 years at the club, Grobbelaar won six league titles, three FA Cups, three League Cups and that European crown, making 628 appearances.

32. Trent Alexander-Arnold

It says a lot about Alexander-Arnold that at the age of 23 he is already regarded as one of the greatest players to ever play for Liverpool.

But he has already achieved a lot and was instrumental in the Reds’ victories in the Premier League, Champions League and Club World Cup under Jurgen Klopp, with many assists and goals from the right-back. He has the record for assists by a defender in a single Premier League season with 13, and his performance in the triumphant Champions League final against Tottenham in 2019 made him the youngest player, at 22, to play in back-to-back finals . . at the tournament.

31. Ronnie Whelan

A staple of Liverpool’s highly successful period in the 1980s, Whelan arrived at Anfield from his native Ireland in 1979 and within two years was establishing himself as a regular.

The midfielder remained a key member of the team well into the 1990s, winning six league medals, three FA Cups, three League Cups and the 1984 European Cup.

30. Ray Kennedy

Midway through the 1975/76 season, Bob moved Paisley Kennedy from the attacking line to the left of midfield, a brilliant move that changed the former Arsenal striker’s time at the club.

He immediately excelled in this new role and quickly secured a regular starting spot as Liverpool embarked on a run of five league titles in seven years.

Kennedy also won three European Cups in an incredible spell of success for the Reds and his goal against Bayern Munich in the 1981 semi-finals proved to be decisive in two games.

29.Andrew Robertson

Robertson’s rise from part-time footballer at Queen’s Park in Scotland’s fourth tier to join Liverpool in four years is well documented, but that doesn’t make it any less spectacular.

The Scotland captain has excelled under Jurgen Klopp, providing a dynamism and attacking threat at left-back that few players in his position are capable of.

The 28-year-old has been a key cog in the Reds’ machinery as they won the Premier League, Champions League and world club titles under Jurgen Klopp and it’s only a matter of time before he does. other honors do follow.

28 Mark Lawrenson

Lawrenson cost Liverpool a record £900,000 fee when he signed for Brighton in 1981, but the defender proved he was worth every penny when he formed a formidable partnership with Alan Hansen.

Lawrenson was quick, strong and capable of playing in a variety of positions, but it was in the center alongside Hansen that he excelled, winning five league titles, the FA Cup and the European Cup in seven seasons at Anfield.

27. Terry McDermott

McDermott’s creative and attacking abilities complemented his tough midfield partner Graeme Souness perfectly, and the England international scored a spectacular series of goals during a trophy-rich eight-year spell at Anfield.

A three-time European and five-time English champion, McDermott was the first player ever to win the Football Writers’ and PFA Player of the Year awards in the same season in 1980, as his diving header came with a 7- 0 by Tottenham Hotspur in 1978 is regarded as one of Anfield’s greatest goals ever. 26.Ray Clemence

Clemence’s performances between the posts were integral to a golden era of success at Anfield. The nimble and ever-reliable goalkeeper cost the Reds just £18,000 at Scunthorpe in 1967, one of the biggest bargains they’ve ever had.

After taking the first-team gloves off Tommy Lawrence, Clemence has helped Liverpool build a strong defensive unit that has behind them three European Cups, two UEFA Cups and five league titles. The goalkeeper has ensured incredible consistency, missing just six league games in 11 years.

25 Alan Kennedy

Before Andy Robertson, there was Alan Kennedy. A marauding left-back who scored a string of crucial goals in Liverpool’s glittering run in the 1980s.

Kennedy joined the Reds from Newcastle in 1978 and became England’s most expensive full-back at £330,000. Paisley’s expectations were high, but it’s fair to say Kennedy exceeded them.

He scored the only goal in the 1981 European Cup final against Real Madrid and the decisive penalty in the win against Roma three years later. In all, he won 11 major trophies with Liverpool, including five Premier League titles, laying the groundwork for attacking full-backs to follow.


When Liverpool approved – at the time – a world record transfer fee for a goalkeeper to bring Alisson from Roma in 2018, they knew what they were doing.

Goalkeeping boss John Achterberg had followed the Brazilian for five years since his Internacional days and was confident he could solve a long-term problem.

After years of coping effectively between the posts, Alisson was a perfectly trained opponent; a confident, agile and strong goalkeeper, dominant on and off the line, with lightning-fast reflexes and the ability to counter-attack with his precise shot. At £65m, Alisson was a bargain, especially when compared to the goalkeeper who broke his own transfer record just three weeks later – Kepa Arrizabalaga.

23.Tommy Smith

Tommy Smith was created for Liverpool. Born and raised in and around Anfield, he joined the stadium’s ground team as a youth before progressing through the schoolboy ranks and impressing Bill Shankly.

The young Smith started out as a striker, but during a decorated 16-year spell with the first team, he established himself as a formidable presence as a centre-back which saw him transcend the evolution from the early 60s to the late 70s . A fearless and relentless player, he was a regular for the team for over a decade, including a season in 1970/71 in which he made 61 appearances – in total, Smith made 638 appearances for his youth club, finishing eighth in the club table . all time list.

As Bill Shankly rightly said, “Tommy Smith wasn’t born, he was mined.”

22. Sami Iypia

One of the all-time deals in Liverpool history.

Sami Hyypia was recommended to CEO Peter Robinson by the club’s official European cameraman: after extensive scouting, the Finn was signed by Willem II for just £2.5m.

He gave Gerard Houllier’s side the steel and finesse they needed alongside tenacious Jamie Carragher, leading to a hat-trick of trophies in 2000/01 as he progressed to Champions League success against Juventus in 2005. Hyypia wore the captain’s armband with distinction until it was kindly passed on to Steven Gerrard, and with 464 appearances in 10 years he is one of only two foreign players in the club’s all-time top 20 .

21. Steve Highway

A legendary winger whose name is still sung on the Kop, Steve Heighway was brought to Liverpool in his early twenties and made the transition from the non-league to the top division seamlessly.

Boasting a blistering pace and the strength to take on the tough challenges that marked his era, Heighway could both score and assist with impressive frequency – of those who plied his trade in years gone by, he would be without arguably one of the best to match the modern game.

Later in his career, he used his wits and instincts to take on a more central role, which helped prolong a remarkable career which kept him at Anfield until his mid-30s and won him 11 trophies majors. He came to the club as an anomaly, a college graduate, and that obviously helped him when he returned to Liverpool in 1989 to lead the academy and nurture a generation that included Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Robbie.Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Steve McManaman.

20.Ron Yeats

As Bill Shankly returnedo the First Division, he branded his fellow Scotsman the man to build in defence, telling reporters at Ron Yeats’ presentation: ‘Take a walk around my centre-back, gentlemen, he’s a behemoth!’

Alongside his new team-mates at Anfield, Yeats looked like a giant and, as promised by Shankly upon his arrival, he was in the top flight a year later.

A constant in the 1960s, Yeats was the Virgil van Dijk of his generation. A leader in the rear; an immovable object that could dominate games with the sheer presence of him. He would later serve the club as a chief scout, spending 20 years in the role discovering a number of key talents.

19. Phil Thompson

Thompson was an educated defender who helped propel the role into a new era and was central to Liverpool’s success in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Kirkby native, who spent his childhood at the Kop, won the title as Liverpool captain and partnered with a succession of top-flight centre-backs as a valued lieutenant to Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley. Thompson was also an England staple, with his graceful approach in defense leading to a stylistic shift from long balls to playing from behind. He served Liverpool in a variety of behind-the-scenes roles in the decades following his retirement, including coming on as a substitute when Gerard Houllier underwent emergency heart surgery in 2001.

18. Jamie Carragher

Despite growing up an Everton fan, Jamie Carragher has been the epitome of Liverpool since his debut as a precocious full-back in 1996.

Carragher has made a natural progression from defensive flanks to his long-serving centre-back role, setting an example in defense as a no-nonsense, never-dying figure.

He is second on Liverpool’s all-time appearances list and, although he won the treble under Gerard Houllier and battled cramps to steer Liverpool to Champions League success in Istanbul, his effort has earned him far more trophies. Although Carragher was never the most cultured player, he was a true world-class centre-back for a long time, giving his all for the club he now calls his own.

17. Robbie Fowler

Robbie Fowler, one of the best finishers to ever play for Liverpool, could score anywhere with his left foot, right foot or head, honing his natural wild instinct to become the fearsome No.9.

Fowler was certainly more than the sum of his goals, but they shaped his career.

He was ruthless in the box and the fact that he came through the academy made him even more popular with the fans.

16 Sadio Mane

Incredibly, given what he has achieved, the response to Sadio Mane’s move to Liverpool from Southampton has not been entirely positive.

But the Senegalese has been at the heart of the club’s success under Jurgen Klopp: a tenacious and phenomenally gifted striker who has excelled in various positions and possesses an unrelenting desire to win.

His humble character has ensured that he continues to be underestimated by many, but Mane is undoubtedly one of the finest players to represent Liverpool and a key part of the club’s revitalization.

15.Emlyn Hughes

Emlyn Hughes was a prototypical elite footballer whose dedication and enthusiasm matched his then unrivaled talent. Bill Shankly was so convinced he could build his team around the Blackpool defender that he called on him every day until his eventual move to Anfield in 1967.

Affectionately known as ‘Crazy Horse’, Hughes gave his all for Liverpool and led the club through a dominant era as captain.

14. Ian San Giovanni

Alongside Ron Yeats, the ruthless Ian St John was heralded by Bill Shankly as “Liverpool’s initiator”, with the legendary manager viewing the pair as his greatest asset.

He is a fine testimony and St John deserved it as a transformative attacking presence for Liverpool. His goals – 118 in 425 games – helped propel the Reds to glory in the 1960s, notably in 1965 when they beat Leeds in front of 100,000 fans at Wembley with a header in extra time for the first time in the FA Cup.

13. Alan Hansen

Fans of a certain vintage may know Alan Hansen best as the austere Scotsman on the couch at the match of the day, but on the Merseyside side he is remembered as the revolutionary centre-back who helped Liverpool to a lasting success.

He was the linchpin of Liverpool’s defense for over a decade and his ability to get the ball out of defense with incredible ease gave the Reds another edge.

His effortless style is a benchmark for the modern defender, who commands long stretches of pitch with power, poise and composure.

12. Ian Callaghan

With 857 appearances for Liverpool in 19 seasons, Ian Callaghan holds a Liverpool record that will almost certainly never be broken.

The small winger took over from an icon in Billy Liddell, winning over Bill Shankly as a ‘pro model’ before accepting a new role to support his industry in the middle of the park.

“If there were 11 Callaghans at Anfield there would never be a need to build a team,” Shankly said. “You could bet your life on Ian.”

11. Billy Liddell

Billy Liddell was born in Scotland but spent his entire 23-year career in Liverpool, interrupted by his service as a navigator for the RAF during the Second World War.

Known as a prolific striker, Liddell most often played on the left wing but was also able to play on the right flank and up front. a limitless source of lenses that have steadily improved over the decades.

Liddell was one of football’s most famous players and his mark on Liverpool was so significant that the club was affectionately known as ‘Liddellpool’.

10.Kevin Keegan

The original Anfield pin-up? Kevin Keegan scored 12 minutes in his Liverpool debut, as a 20-year-old striker for Bill Shankly, barely stopping for an outstanding six seasons.

His ability was astounding and he always seemed to be at least one step ahead of the defenders in front of him, intertwining with the likes of John Toshack, Steve Heighway and Ray Kennedy as the exciting centerpiece of Shankly’s offense. Keegan scored exactly 100 times during his spell with the Reds and became an icon in the number 7 shirt before making the bold move to leave England for Hamburg, where he won the Ballon d’Équipe twice Gold.

No Brit has won that award again until Michael Owen in 2001, with Keegan’s captivating talents forged on Merseyside.

9.Graeme Souness

Far from the harshness in the Sky Sports studio, as a player Graeme Souness was the complete midfielder and a talisman who helped lead Liverpool to victory.

Inserted shortly after Kenny Dalglish and Alan Hansen, Souness was part of the regeneration of Bill Shankly’s European Cup-winning first team, quickly making his mark in the Scotsman’s midfield.

While he may be known for his aggressive and action-packed approach, Souness was also an excellent passer, a skilled dribbler and a superb striker who scored 55 goals in 359 appearances. Souness dominated a Roma midfield of Toninho Cerezo and Falcao in his last game for Liverpool and markedly marked by lifting their fourth European Cup.

8.Roger Hunt

“To Liverpool fans he is ‘Sir Roger’ as he was nicknamed by the Kop all those years ago,” Jamie Carragher said of the late Roger Hunt in 2021, “and one of the guys who made Liverpool what they are today.”

Hunt was part of the England squad that achieved immortality in the 1966 World Cup and was a deadly finisher who remains second on Liverpool’s all-time goalscorers list, with 285 in just 492 appearances.

His club record of 244 league goals will likely never be surpassed, with the striker signed from Stockton Heath playing an integral part in the club’s rise from the Second Division to the top flight.

The Kops loved him, and rightly so. Hunt’s accomplishments have gone down in history.

7. Virgil van Dijk

Given Virgil van Dijk’s influence over Liverpool today, he is often pitted against Ron Yeats and Alan Hansen in the debate over the club’s best centre-back of all time.

Make no mistake, Van Dijk is the best and most complete defender to ever play for the Reds.

His record £75million transfer from Southampton is one of the most influential of Jurgen Klopp’s tenure. The Dutchman had a transformative and almost immediate effect on the club’s defence. Van Dijk can do it all, and often does so with a nonchalance that makes it seem like there’s more in his locker than he’s letting on. A Rolls Royce if there ever was one.

6. Ian Rush

An incredibly prolific striker, Ian Rush is the benchmark for Liverpool forwards, not only for his record tally of 346 goals, but also for his tireless efforts to defend from the front.

The Welshman served the club through the 1980s and much of the 1990s – although he had a brief and unhappy spell at Juventus – and set the tone with his leadership skills. It looked easy for Rush to top 30 goals in his first six full seasons for Liverpool – including twice 40 or more.

And while his powers certainly waned towards the end of his career in the Premier League era, Rush was still a valuable player for the club he was coming to adore.

5. John Barnes

For a generation of football fans, their inspiration was John Barnes, a great winger who joined Liverpool from Watford in 1987 and became an icon.

Barnes was truly untouchable on the ball, his dribbling skills were second to none and, as one of the first top black players in the English top flight, he survived the abuse that sadly rained down from the stands. In his later years, he took on a bigger role in midfield and led the team until the mid-1990s while using his footballing brain to dictate the game.

4. Luis Suarez

For many fans and teammates, Luis Suarez is the most talented footballer to ever play for Liverpool.

The Uruguayan played alongside Andy Carroll at Anfield at the end of a spectacular transfer window in January 2011, and from his very first training session he showed Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher his classy skills world.

In his second full season at Liverpool, Suarez really came to life and in the following 2013/14 season he almost guided Brendan Rodgers’ side to the title with his untouchable goal streak. A tenacious and relentless striker who always seemed to have the upper hand in 50-50 and one-on-ones, Suarez was a one-of-a-kind player who captured the hearts of the Kop. If only he had stayed longer.

3. Mohammed Salah

Mohamed Salah is a different kind of footballer; a truly elite athlete who ranks next to the best in terms of dedication to his craft.

Having seen his hopes of a move to Liverpool dashed in favor of a disastrous move to Chelsea in 2014, the Egyptian capitalized on that disappointment and cruised through Serie A before making a comeback at Anfield. Salah never scored fewer than 23 goals in a single season for the Reds, twice scoring over 30 and, in his incredible first season for Merseyside, netting 44 in 52 appearances.

He is a fan-favorite scoring machine and has already entered the club’s all-time top 10. Given the chance with an extended stay, Salah could realistically finish his career in the top three.

2. Steven Gerrard

There are good reasons to believe that Steven Gerrard is Liverpool’s greatest player of all time. Quite simply, if Gerrard had been dropped from the Liverpool squad in his time, Liverpool would have found themselves in mid-table. The 2005 Champions League simply wouldn’t have happened.

Gerrard almost single-handedly coached Liverpool through difficult times in the 2000s, behaving like a true Rovers Roy, scoring sensational 30-yard volleys in stoppage time, inspiring some mediocre players around him and keeping Liverpool competitive . He remains the only player to score in a League Cup Final, FA Cup Final, UEFA Cup Final and Champions League Final. He is at that rare club where an FA Cup Final is named after him following a last minute equalizer in 2006 from 40 yards away against West Ham.

If Gerrard could have completed his set of trophies with a league title, he could have given the number one on this list an even bigger challenge.

1.Kenny Dalglish

For a certain generation of Liverpool fans, ‘King’ Kenny Dalglish will always be number one. And rightly so.

Replacing outgoing King Kevin (Keegan), Dalglish ended his first season at Anfield with the winning goal in the 1978 European Cup final – and the rest, as they say, is history.

This was followed by six league titles over the next eight seasons, as well as two more European victories as Dalglish led Liverpool to trophy dominance in England and Europe. That latest title went to a 35-year-old player-manager who scored the winning goal at Stamford Bridge and guided the Reds to a Championship and FA Cup double.

Well sir, Dalglish has done it all on and off the pitch. His role in the aftermath of the Hillsborough disaster will never be forgotten by families on Merseyside, as Dalglish and his wife Marina attended dozens of funerals, including four in one day.

“When Kenny shines, the whole team shines,” as Bob Paisley eloquently put it. And boy, did King Kenny shine for Liverpool?
