FourFourTwo's Iconic Shirt Numbers: Liverpool's No.7
Manager: 1985-91, 2011-12
There is no better or more direct way to describe Kenny Dalglish than as simply the greatest player in Liverpool’s long and decorated history.
Whether it was during his time as a player, his six years as a player-manager, or even in a belated managerial cameo when he was in his 60's, trophies followed the Scotsman’s every turn.
A total of eight league titles, three European Cups, three FA Cups and five League Cups – the last of which when rescuing the club from the post-Roy Hodgson debacle in 2012 – all came during his long association with the Reds, putting him among the most decorated figures in the game’s history.
Steven Gerrard is comfortably the Reds’ best player of the Premier League era and the next best thing to Dalglish, but this No.7’s armoury of awards – particularly those league titles – makes him a clear No.1.
