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

"I asked him, "Whereabouts in England is Liverpool.'
'Oh, we're in the First Division son', replied Shanks.
This took me aback. I said, 'I thought you were in the Second Division?'
Shanks replied, 'When we sign you, son, we’ll be in the First Division next year.'"
