Sir Kenny Dalglish ‘humbled’ after receiving knighthood

Sir Kenny Dalglish has revealed he feels ‘humbled’ to receive a knighthood.

The football legend was honoured for supporting Liverpool fans during their darkest hour.

The former player and manager helped dozens of families in the aftermath of the Hillsborough football disaster in 1989.

Sir Kenny was born in Glasgow in 1951 and went on to have a hugely successful football career with Celtic, Liverpool and Scotland.

The Scot went on to become an Anfield hero, winning three European Cups and six league titles with the club.

He was knighted by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace for services to football, charity and the city of Liverpool.

Speaking about becoming a Sir, he told the Liverpool Echo: ‘You feel humble. When you start off in your life, what do you want? You just want to play football.

‘And when you play football, what do you want to do? You want to try and be successful, be a professional footballer, try and win something.’
