Bill Shankly: A legend for Liverpool FC, an icon of modern football and an all-round man of the people. ,
Transforming Liverpool FC team from a team who had been a staple of the English second division for the past decade into a team of champions who would go on to dominate domestic and European football during the 70s, garnering an impressive reputation and trophy haul. A product of his working-class roots in Ayrshire, his career in management spanned a period when football was very much the people’s game and, to that end, his name has rightfully gone down in history as one of the greats.
