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.

Liverpool and Ajax drew 2-2 in the 2nd leg at Anfield and Shankly told the press: "We could have scored seven and won easily if Peter Thompson had not hit the bar in the sixth minute."

Liverpool lost the 1st leg 5-1 against Ajax in Amsterdam in 1966
