Liverpool’s greatest XI of all-time named

Posted by

RAM) Billy Liddell

Recommended to the club as a 17-year-old by Liverpool captain Matt Busby. Liddell was a pacy, direct, two-thunder-footed prolific goalscorer who shone during a poor period for the club in the 1950’s.

CAM) Kevin Keegan

Twice a Ballon d’Or winner with Hamburg, but also an exceptional player for Liverpool. He once said: “The only thing I fear is missing an open goal in front of the Kop. I would die if that were to happen. When they start singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ my eyes start to water. There have been times when I’ve actually been crying while I’ve been playing.”

LAM) Kenny Dalglish

Sir Alex Ferguson said of him… “Kenny had unbelievable vision and strength as a player. He was really aware of people around him. He had great balance and was a good finisher, courageous too. People often forget that the one quality great players need is courage. Kenny is as brave as a lion. He would take a kick from anyone and come back for more. Kenny is a man I shall always respect.”

ST) Ian Rush

The greatest striker ever to pull on a Liverpool shirt. With 346 goals to show from 636 appearances spanning two spells and 15 years, his tally may never be surpassed. The British game’s most effective striker since Jimmy Greaves.
