‘Ronnie captained me on my LFC debut – it was a privilege to work with him’

23rd March 2017

Liverpool’s all-time record appearance holder Ian Callaghan has shared his memories of the great Ronnie Moran, who sadly passed away on Wednesday.

April 16, 1960, was the date that Callaghan played the first of his 857 games in a red shirt – and Moran was his captain as Bill Shankly’s side beat Bristol Rovers 4-0 at Anfield in the old Second Division.

Wearing the famous No.7 jersey, Callaghan had a debut to remember and he admits the presence of Moran alongside him was a huge help and something he will never forget.

“That was a long time ago but I still remember my debut and it was one of the highlights of my life really, making my debut for Liverpool,” Callaghan told Liverpoolfc.com.

“Ronnie was playing left-back and it turned out to be a marvellous day because we won.

“Besides the wonderful work Ronnie did for this club I also remember him fondly as a player. He had a tremendous left foot and he was a strong player.

“I shared the pitch with Ronnie on many an occasion and it was an absolute privilege and a pleasure to play alongside that man, and later of course to be coached by him.”

Moran gave Liverpool FC 49 years’ worth of service, serving with the highest distinction as a player, captain, coach and caretaker manager.
