Paisleys name will forever be synonymous with Liverpool Football Club having loyally served the club for more than 44 years.
A player, a physiotherapist, a reserve team coach, a first-team trainer, an assistant manager and finally into the hot seat himself. Paisley did it all, even later adding director to his list of titles.
The great man won six First Division titles, three European Cups, one UEFA Cup, one UEFA Super Cup, three League Cups and six Charity Shields during his nine seasons as manager.
A humble genius and when he talked, you listened. Here are 10 of his best quotes.
If there was ever a quote to sum up Paisley as a man, this is the one:
This club has been my life. Id go out and sweep the street and be proud to do it for Liverpool FC if they asked me to.
And as a manager, he wanted a young player prepared to take it to senior figures on the pitch but respectful of their standing off it:
The sort of lad I am looking for is a kid who will nutmeg Kevin Keegan in training, then step aside him in the corridor.
Weve all seen this one and its no wonder its stood the test of time, hes spot on:
If youre in the penalty area and arent quite sure what to do with the ball, stick it in the net and well discuss your options afterwards!
It may be simple in its delivery, but thats just the point
Its not about the long ball or the short ball, its about the right ball.
You cannot escape the lows and Paisley had some wise words on the matter that we should all look to remember
One of the things I keep reminding players is that when youre lost in a fog, you must stick together. Then you dont get lost.
If theres a secret about Liverpool, thats it.
