If he was still with us, the great Bill Shankly would be 97 years old today, and no doubt still an avid fan of the beautiful game, and particularly his beloved Liverpool. So happy birthday Shanks – he passed away in September 1981, but he’ll never be forgotten, not at Anfield anyway.

Here, Pies dips into the PA archives and comes up with a few cracking old pics of Shankly in his prime. Hope you enjoy ’em:
