Kenneth Mathieson Dalglish has given his life to Liverpool Football Club, the city and to British football as a player and a manager.
As a Celtic player, his feats overshadowed by his later days at Liverpool were astonishing; in seven years at the Hoops, Dalglish won four league titles, four Scottish Cups and one Scottish League Cup
Dalglish then graced Anfield as a player for 13 years winning six league titles, one FA Cup, four League Cups, five Charity Shields, one European Super Cup and three European Cups.
Then as a manager for the Reds for six years, Dalglish led Liverpool to three league titles, two FA Cups and four Charity Shields.
Later, he also managed Blackburn Rovers to the league title in 1995 and Celtic to the Scottish League Cup in 2000.
Dalglish mourned the loss of 96 Liverpool fans who never returned from Hillsborough on that fatefully horrid day. He led the club and city of Liverpool in honoring those fans that passed away, and he did so gallantly, honorably and with a poise that was an example to all.
As an ambassador to his beloved Liverpool Football Club in later years when Rafa Benitez was manager, Dalglish spread the word of Liverpool FC to the world and ensured the growth of the club in new areas.
Having returned this year to lead the club to respectability after the most shocking of starts to a season in their history, Dalglish will no doubt be leading Liverpool in the 2011-12 season and many more to come.
In 1984, Dalglish was honored with an MBE and there have been calls for Dalglish to be knighted and honored for his lifetime service to British football and for all his charity work in cancer awareness and founding The Marina Dalglish Appeal with his wife to raise money for cancer care.
In fact during the 2011 Hillsborough Memorial Service, Liverpool MP Steve Rotherham announced he would be putting forward a motion to the Queen to see Dalglish knighted for the part he played in helping the 96 families that lost members at the Hillsborough disaster.
It would be a most fitting sight for all those associated with Livepool FC and the city of Liverpool, if Kenny Dalglish were soon to become Sir Kenny Dalglish.
