Liverpool FC and Kenny Dalglish: A story like no other…

Kenny Dalglish

3rd May 2017

After Liverpool FC today announced plans to rename the Centenary Stand at Anfield as The Kenny Dalglish Stand, we take a look back over the legendary Scot’s near-four-decade love affair with the club…

Kenny Dalglish’s Liverpool love affair actually first began back on a hot August afternoon in 1966.

Aged 15, the fair-haired youngster travelled down from Glasgow for a trial at Anfield in front of the legendary Bill Shankly, though he would return north of the border to begin the early stages of a glittering professional career with Celtic.

When he finally did join in August 1977, it was hard to see how Bob Paisley’s side could top their first European Cup triumph of the previous season. But, with the highly influential Dalglish in the team, the next 13 years brought untold riches.

Unlike many Liverpool signings of the era, the Scotland international was already a household name when he made the switch from Parkhead to Anfield. His deeds in the green and white hoops of Celtic had made him one of the most sought-after figures in British football and it required a record £440,000 fee to secure his services.
