Author: Lewis Peters

Date: Tuesday 24th October 2017


Liverpool Football Club has decided to rename the Centenary Stand in favour for the Kenny Dalglish Stand in recognition of his incredible contribution to the club as a player and as a manger.

Joined by his friends and family for the ceremony, Kenny gave this speech; “I’m hugely honoured to be recognised by Liverpool in this way. This is a club that means so much, not just to me, but to countless people who have contributed to it either through their ability as footballers, their passion as supporters or their commitment as owners and administrators. I just hope that the people sitting in the stand that bears my name derive as much enjoyment from watching Liverpool as I have had from playing for them.”

The decision to honour Dalglish was made by the club’s American owners, Fenway Sports Group (FSG)
