The famous Shankly Gates are being installed in their new location as work draws to a close on the new Main Stand.
They were originally built after the death of the great man back in 1981, and were formally opened by Shankly’s widow Nessie on August 26, 1982.
They became so iconic that the “You’ll Never Walk Alone” banner was officially incorporated into our badge in 1992 as part of our centenary celebrations.
The gates were built on the Anfield Road and took pride of place alongside the Hillsborough Memorial, but they were taken down and put into storage last February as work on the new stand ramped up.
They have now been rebuilt on the other side of the ground and will form part of the entrance way to the car park behind the Centenary Stand. (via Echo).
Interestingly, Echo writer Horace Yates first gave the club the idea for the gates after being inspired by a similar construction at Lords Cricket Ground.
