Bill Shankly Obituary: 40th anniversary of the death of the great Bill Shankly. Gone but never forgotten Boss & may your legacy live on for many generations to come. The Messiah. The one who put #Liverpool on the World footballing map. A man who did more for the cause of Liverpool FC than anyone in the club’s history. Was born in Glenbuck, lived and died in Liverpool. The man who laid the foundations and led Liverpool FC back to the top. You can’t think of a manager who did more for #LFC in his career than Shankly did. RIP.

Today sadly marks 40 years since the great Bill Shankly died.
On the excellent tribute show broadcast on Granada that day (that can be found on YouTube), many of football’s great names spoke lovingly of the man – including Tom Finney, Matt Busby and Harry Catterick.#RIP #LFC pic.twitter.com/oZQVhZoZSK

On this day in 1968, Liverpool FC defeated Swansea Town 2-0 in the League Cup tie at Anfield. Bill Shankly gave a chance to certain young goalkeeper to make his debut for the club… And that’s how Ray Clemence started his fantastic #LFC career!#LFChistory_net pic.twitter.com/gfCo77ggPp
