Ian Callaghan holds the record for the most appearances in Liverpool’s history and his legacy within English football is huge.

The Liverpool-born stalwart of our team across 18 years, has already been inducted to the National Football Museum hall of fame in 2010 and returned to the museum for his most recent accolade.

Our former utility man, who initially took the place of Billy Liddell in our team was announced as part of the football pools panel and was announced alongside another former Red.

Michael Owen, Rachael Brown and Derek Johnstone were also announced as being on the panel too, as part of an expert team that can help predict the results for the lottery style game of football results.

It was a major part of the game around 50 years ago and is still going strong today, with the panel arguably having to work harder during the pandemic than ever before.

To further add to the esteem of the Toxteth-born club legend, he even brought along his 1966 world cup winners’ medal.

Cally has actually been on the panel for a number of years already and this announcement was a continuation of his involvement with the company, whilst introducing its newest panel members.
