The former No.7’s family also took out time to respond to well-wishers. His son Paul Dalglish, a former Newcastle United player described it as a humbling experience to see the outpour of goodwill from fans of all clubs.
He also urged people to stay safe in what has been a testing time for everyone.
“I’m sure we can all agree this is more important than football & that we are all united as blues to support the NHS. Stay safe everyone.”
Dalglish’s daughter, Kelly Cates, a presenter for Sky Sports and BBC, also went on to thank fans for their wishes and apologized for not being able to reply to all the messages.
One of the club’s finest, he has won 20 major trophies as a player and a manager. As a tribute to him, Liverpool named the Centenary stand at Anfield as the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand in 2018. (h/t Liverpoolfc.com)
