Liverpool to unveil Kenny Dalglish Stand at Anfield ahead of Manchester United game
Last Updated: 06/10/17 9:18am
Liverpool will officially unveil the Kenny Dalglish Stand on Saturday, October 14 when they host Manchester United, live on Sky Sports.
Earlier this year, Liverpool announced that Anfield's Centenary Stand would be renamed the Kenny Dalglish Stand to commemorate the Scot's contribution to the club, both on and off the field.
Work on branding the Kenny Dalglish Stand is already well underway at Anfield, with the installation of illuminated signage and exterior graphics to the front and inside of the stand beginning this week, set for completion ahead of the official fan unveiling at the United fixture.
To celebrate the occasion a special mosaic will be revealed across the Kenny Dalglish Stand and the Kop ahead of kick off, and the matchday programme will feature a cover dedicated to the club legend.
Dalglish's Liverpool love affair has spanned nearly four decades, beginning in 1977 when he initially moved to Merseyside from Celtic, through to the present day where he currently holds the position of non-executive board director.
He enjoyed two successful spells as manager in addition to 515 appearances and 172 goals as a player. In total, he lifted eight league championships, three European Cups, two FA Cups, five League Cups and one UEFA Super Cup.
Liverpool trail second-placed Manchester United by seven points ahead of the October 14 showdown.
