Liverpool supporters set to honour Ronnie Moran and Hillsborough victims with Anfield mosaics

Anfield will honour the late Ronnie Moran, and mark the 28th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, with two mosaics at upcoming Liverpool games.

Moran passed away on Wednesday morning aged 83, with Merseyside mourning the loss of one of Liverpool Football Club’s most legendary figures.

Bugsy served the club for 49 years in various capacities, and his death saw tributes flood in from supporters, former players and current players alike.

Following calls for Moran’s life to be honoured by a mosaic at Anfield at the Merseyside derby on April 1, supporters have organised this.

This will be followed by another ahead of the home clash with Bournemouth on April 5, to honour the 96 supporters who their lives at Hillsborough in 1989.

Plans were announced by the Merseyside branch of the Liverpool FC Official Supporters’ Club on Facebook on Sunday:

Andy Knott will be doing a mosaic for the derby for Ronnie Moran and one at the Bournemouth match for Hillsborough. Any volunteers are welcome.

The club’s rules are stricter this time as he must have your name 24 hours in advance and you must take ID on the day.

Volunteers needed 1pm on Friday at a gate to be confirmed on the day and for the day of the Bournemouth game (time to be confirmed). Contact him on [email protected]

This serves as a fitting tribute for Moran, who played a key role in Liverpool’s success over the years, with the club still bearing his imprint to this day.
