Liverpool|November 30, 2021
Liverpool announced the sad news on Tuesday afternoon that legendary former Reds forward Ray Kennedy had passed away at the age of 70.
Kennedy scored 72 goals in 393 appearances for the club over eight years at Anfield, winning 11 major honours including five First Division titles and three European Cups.
John Aldridge led the tributes on social media, writing what a player and lovely bloke who suffered so much with Parkinsons disease for most of his life.
He will definitely never walk alone, the ex-Reds striker continued.
Fans also took to Twitter to pay respect to a bona fide Liverpool legend:
