DALGLISH SALUTES ‘ICON’ ST JOHN

Liverpool all-time great Kenny Dalglish has hailed former Reds striker Ian St John as an ‘icon’.

Title-winning, ex-Scotland striker St John, who went onto become one half of Saint and Greavsie, has died aged 82.

Liverpool called him a “true legend” and Dalglish gave him a special tribute on the club’s official website.

Former Reds frontman and manager Dalglish, 69, said: “He certainly was, and deservedly so, an iconic figure in and around Liverpool Football Club because he came in at the very beginning with Shanks and big Yatesey [Ron Yeats].

“He got off to a terrible start by scoring a hat-trick against Everton at Goodison in the Liverpool Senior Cup, so I think after he did that he was always going to be revered in and around Liverpool.

“It’s because of what he did in those early days, Shanks especially, the Saint and Big Yatesey, his big mucker, and it’s because of them where this football club is at this particular moment in time. 

“We should be eternally grateful for what he did for the football club.”
