Ronnie Moran: The remarkable life of ‘Mr Liverpool’

Ronnie Moran

22nd March 2017

Liverpool FC is deeply saddened by the passing of club legend Ronnie Moran, aged 83.

The revered former player, captain, coach and caretaker manager – and much more besides – passed away on Wednesday morning.

Moran first joined the Reds as a player in 1949, signing professional forms three years later, and subsequently dedicated five decades of his life to the insatiable and successful pursuit of collecting trophies.

A defender during his own career – which involved 379 appearances, including 47 as skipper – his connection to Liverpool continued far beyond his days on the pitch, as a founding member of the fabled Boot Room and in a variety of backroom roles until 1998.

His debut for Liverpool was on November 22, 1952 – an otherwise inauspicious afternoon that ended with a 3-2 defeat against Derby County at the Baseball Ground.

But Moran’s Reds timeline had begun, though none of the 20,000 people in attendance could have predicted the imprint this young man from Crosby would make on the fabric of LFC.

Much of the first half of his playing career with the club was occupied by the search for a route out of the Second Division, but the full-back’s refusal to take his obvious talents elsewhere was an early sign of his loyalty.
