Liverpool will officially unveil the newly-named Kenny Dalglish Stand at the home match against Manchester United on October 14.

Work on branding and installation of illuminated signage and exterior graphics to the front and inside of what was formerly known as the Centenary Stand, began this week.

A special mosaic will be revealed across the Kenny Dalglish Stand and the Kop ahead of kick-off and the match-day programme will feature a cover dedicated to the former player and manager.

Dalglish said: "It is an honour and privilege to be asked to return to Liverpool as a Director of the Club. I have always said if there is anything I could do to help this Club I would make myself available - when the call came I had no hesitation.

"Liverpool has given me and my family so much since we came here just over 36 years ago and my priority is and will always be to have the Club's best interests at heart."

Dalglish: 'The families' search to see justice done goes on'

The events of yesterday means the dignified search for justice has been given a platform to build on.

The sad thing is that 41 of the victims could have been saved and for their families there was obviously great upset.

The Prime Minister spoke very well, and MPs Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram have done a fantastic job at getting the release of the papers brought forward, while great credit should also go to the panel when you consider how much information they had to work through.

The aims remain the same for the families and their search to see justice done goes on.

A start would be for the death certificates and the coroner’s report to be changed from accidental death to unlawful killing.

However, it was a very encouraging day and a big step towards eventual closure.
