Kenneth Dalglish is widely regarded as the most successful British footballer of his generation. A prolific goalscorer, he was the first ever to score a hundred goals in both the English and Scottish leagues. Born in Glasgow, he grew up supporting Rangers, but it was rival club Celtic who signed him in 1967. Dalglish appeared in the first team in 1970, after which he helped Celtic win four Championships, four Scottish Cups and one League Cup. In 1977 Dalglish moved to Liverpool for a record fee of £440,000. At Anfield he was part of the teams that won the European Cup in 1978, 1981 and 1984. Winning a total of 102 selections for Scotland, in 1985 he was appointed player-manager at Liverpool and his immediate League and Cup ‘double’ formed the start of a fairly successful managerial career.
