Former Liverpool Captain And Coach Dies, Aged 83

Former Liverpool captain and coach Ronnie Moran has died at the age of 83. Moran made 379 appearances for Liverpool between 1952 and 1966 and was the club’s longest-serving employee when he retired in 1998.

He joined the coaching staff in 1966 and twice filled in as caretaker manager – after Kenny Dalglish’s resignation in 1991 and following Graeme Souness’ heart surgery in 1992. His son confirmed he had passed away on Wednesday after a short illness.

Moran worked under nine different managers during his time in the dugout. He famously led Liverpool out at Wembley in the 1992 FA Cup Final while caretaker manager while Souness was recovering from surgery.
