Liverpool will afford one of football’s highest honours to Kenny Dalglish this weekend when they officially open a stand renamed in his honour.
As of this Saturday’s visit of Manchester United to Anfield, the Centenary Stand will henceforth be rechristened in King Kenny’s name to commemorate all the fine work the former Reds player and manager has done for the club both on and off the pitch….

Work started this week to fit all the new branding, illuminate signage and exterior graphics, with a special fan mosaic stretching across the Dalglish Stand and The Kop also (quite literally) on the cards for matchday.
Dalglish therefore joins fellow Liverpudlian luminaries Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley in having a tribute laid on at Anfield, though he is the first individual to actually have a stand named after him.
Rarefied air, and thoroughly deserved.
