With Liverpool announcing plans to rename Anfield’s Centenary Stand after Kenny Dalglish, supporters have applauded the club’s decision.
To mark the Reds’ 125th anniversary, owners Fenway Sports Group have prompted the move to honour Dalglish for his unique service to the club.
As player, manager, ambassador and talisman, few embody Liverpool Football Club more than Dalglish, and the new Kenny Dalglish Stand is the perfect way to mark his impact.
The Scot scored 172 goals in 515 games for the club, winning 33 honours in his time on the pitch and in the dugout, and is a bona fide Liverpool legend.
Here’s how Liverpool supporters reacted to the news of Dalglish’s honour.
Liverpool have announced that the Centenary Stand will be renamed The Kenny Dalglish Stand.
