Shanks the legend


Uploaded by "Muzzam83"

On 16 December 2009 Bil Shankly was honoured as 50 years had passed since he signed his contract to become manager of Liverpool Football Club. Anfield was the stage for an emotional parade of legends along with nine members of Shankly’s family before Liverpool played Wigan Athletic in the Premier League. The sounds of ‘Amazing Grace’ – Shankly’s favourite hymn reverberated at half-time. A "SHANKS THE LEGEND" mosaic was unveiled on the Kop prior to kick off.

Shanks quote

"After we'd beaten Arsenal in the Cup at Highbury early in his reign, he stood in the dressing room shouting "Liverpool, Liverpool!" then jumped in the bath with us for the first and only time! He was amazing. Unique."
