KENNY DALGLISH has paid tribute to Ronnie Moran after the Liverpool legend was admitted to hospital.
The 77-year-old from Crosby, who served the Reds as player, coach, assistant manager and caretaker manager, fell ill earlier this week.
Dalglish said: “He’s part of the fabric here, even now. He comes here two or three times a week to walk by what he calls his prison exercise yard, which is just by the walls here at Melwood.
“He wasn’t feeling great so that’s the best place (hospital) for him. We’ve been assured that he’s very comfortable. Although he’s not 100%, he’s not too bad.
“Ronnie’s been a fantastic part of this football club for almost as long as he has been alive. Let’s hope he has a few more years in him yet. It’s great to see him when he comes here.
“He knows how much the club respect him and care for him.”
Moran, who signed professional terms for the Reds in 1952, served the club for 46 years prior to his retirement in 1998.
