“To understand Dalglish’s heroic response to the Hillsborough Disaster, to appreciate why he took it upon himself to carry a club and a city until eventually he broke under the strain, one has to recognise his passion for his footballing family, Liverpool FC.
When Hillsborough plunged a city into mourning, Liverpool’s family craved a leader, a beacon. Dalglish was the man who held together a grief-stricken community. “They supported Liverpool,” he told those close to him, “now it is the turn of Liverpool Football Club to support them.
And they did.“
Kenny Dalglish You’ll Never Walk Alone.
