Bill Shankly was born in the Ayreshire mining village of Glenbuck in Scotland and played for Carlisle United and Preston North End.
He went on to manage Carlisle United, then Grimsby Town, Workington and then Huddersfield Town before being appointed Liverpool manager in 1959 and he had a tough job lifting them from obscurity in the second division to first division champions by 1966.
The Reds later won the first division title and lifted the UEFA Cup in 1973. The FA Cup followed a year later before Shankly’s shock resignation at the end of the 73/74 season.
Sadly, Shankly died in 1981 after suffering a heart attack. But the legend lives on, and the Shankly Gates remind fans of the man who made the club what it is today.
