    Kenny Dalglish’s Liverpool love affair is set to be explored in a brand new documentary – and you can watch the trailer online now.

    'Kenny' is an incredible feature film that tells the unique story of a man whose life and career have become entwined with the fortunes of his adopted city. Tragedy and triumph have been shared over more than 30 years, cementing Dalglish's place in the hearts of everyone who lives in the city.

    Known as ‘The King’, the Scot was revered by fans during his time at Liverpool FC, where as a player and manager he won thirty trophies. However, arguably his greatest challenge came in the aftermath of Hillsborough, when he became a beacon of hope and strength in the fight for justice that followed.

    In 1985, following the Heysel Stadium disaster, Kenny was appointed player-manager of Liverpool Football Club. Already lionised for his feats on the pitch, this intensely private 34-year old was now the public face of the Reds, making the leap from player to ‘gaffer’.

    His success at the club during the years that followed are uniquely captured through his eyes and interviews with legendary former players such as Alan Hansen, Ian Rush, and John Barnes as well as one of his greatest rivals Sir Alex Ferguson.

    These triumphs were eventually overshadowed by Hillsborough, the impact of that terrible day revealed by Kenny, his closest friends and family, with the toil of carrying the grief of an entire city eventually leading to his resignation as manager.

    Uplifting, powerful, funny but at times truly heart breaking, this unique portrait of a proud Scotsman who captured the hearts of Merseyside will move everyone who watches it. This film tells the story of one of football’s greatest players and a city’s favourite son.

    Wow, that trailer stirred up some powerful mixed memories and emotions for me, Kenny will always be a real part of Liverpool FC, a class player and an even better man, so good to see him back involved at the club.

    Can't wait for that. Kenny is the greatest man that's ever been associated with our club, in my book.

    The King of Anfield.

    Why is the pre order from Amazon and not the club store. This will be a top seller, and make lots of money being sold via the club store which the club won't get via Amazon sales.

    If we are in a position that we don't need money, how about ticket prices get reduced, or sell this in the club store and make up the money you don't want by making tickets for our first home FA Cup game free.


    Anyway back on topic, this looks good and will be buying. What's the running time.

    When Kenny won the league with Blackburn Fergie was the first to write and congratulate him.

    Also I believe the Kenny Dalglish Stand is set to be unveiled this weekend too.
    dont look back in anger.

    Yes on Saturday before the game, is it too much to wish we celebrate the unveiling of the stand of our greatest number 7, by winning by 7.

    Wonder how early we need to get there ? The website says it’s being opened but has no detail.

    Pre-ordered mine. Can't wait.

    Took Kenny a LONG time to admit that Hillsborough affected him so badly, being able to talk it about it now must be so cathartic.

    Never mind his footballing successes, Kenny Dalglish was the city's, greatest friend and supporter in its greatest hour of need since the war. How he was never knighted for that is beyond my comprehension.

    Love the guy to bits, and he's not even in my top 2 of favourite players (Keegan, Hughes)!

    If he was anything to do with Man Utd the Queen herself would of been told to move over so he could have a seat.

    Yeah I saw that earlier and theres a really good read in the Echo too.

    Fergie and Charlton due over today.

    I never tire of reading Kennys words, he speaks with incredible humility and is just such an amazing man
    dont look back in anger.

    Whoever decided to have the stand unveiled on this date, isn't superstitious.
