Liverpool have announced plans to name a stand at Anfield in honour of club legend Kenny Dalglish.
The Centenary Stand is to be renamed “The Kenny Dalglish Stand” in line with Liverpool’s 125th anniversary.
Liverpool say the decision to honour Dalglish’s legacy at the club was taken by owners Fenway Sports Group and led by principal owner John. W Henry.
Dalglish is widely regarded as the best player in the club’s history, scoring 172 goals in 515 appearances after joining from Celtic in 1977.
During his time at Anfield as a player, the Scot won eight league championships, three European Cups, two FA Cups, five League Cups and one UEFA Super Cup.
He also enjoyed two spells as manager and now currently holds the position of non-executive board director.
Off the pitch, Dalglish provided support and leadership in the aftermath of the Hillsborough disaster, in which 96 Liverpool supporters lost their lives at an FA Cup semifinal in 1989.
He and his wife, Marina, also set up the “Marina Dalglish Appeal” in 2005, which aims to help those who have been diagnosed with cancer and their families on Merseyside.
In a statement, Henry said: “It is testament to Liverpool’s history and status that we are not lacking in truly great individuals, whose names could easily grace a stand at Anfield.
“But in Kenny Dalglish we have a person who carries such immense significance to the fabric of this club, so it feels somewhat incumbent on us to recognise this in a manner that is befitting to the man.
