Stand renamed for Kenny
LIVERPOOL great Kenny Dalglish thought he was being sacked for a second time when he was called into manager Jurgen Klopp’s office for a call with owner John Henry — only to discover he was being immortalised at Anfield.
The 66-year-old Scot attended a ceremony today where the Centenary Stand was renamed the Kenny Dalglish Stand.
Family, former teammates and also rivals — including Manchester United’s Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Bobby Charlton — will be present to see the man still regarded as the best player in the club’s history recognised.
“Mike Gordon (Fennway Sports Group president — and the man who sacked Brendan Rodgers) was over and he asked to see me at Melwood,” said Dalglish.
“John started speaking and I thought, ‘Jesus what have I done now?’ I thought I was getting the sack again.
“I thought I was in trouble and then he said they wanted to name the stand after myself, as well as for the football it was for the work done with the community with Marina (Dalglish’s wife) and the charity and everything.”
