Arise, Sir Kenny
LONDON: Former Liverpool player and manager Kenny Dalglish was knighted on Friday.
The Anfield icon was honoured by Queen Elizabeth II for services to football, charity and the city of Liverpool.
Dalglish, 67, was the only sportsperson knighted in the Queen’s Birthday List, while Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe and boxer Anthony Joshua also received honours.
“I am hugely proud to have accepted the accolade,” Dalglish said.
