King Kenny’s canny concoction
Footballers are nothing if not creatures of habit – a theory never better proven than by Kenny Dalglish’s pre-game routine. “I’d be in bed by 8pm, relaxing and watching telly,” the Liverpool forward once recalled. “I’d also have my bar of Dairy Milk and a bottle of Irn-bru.” To unwind ahead of the 1984 European Cup Final against Roma, Kenny even donned a lab coat, visited the HQ of the iconic Scottish beverage and knocked up his own special batch. Sweet.
