The most iconic figure in the history of Liverpool Football Club, according to the official club site.
A charismatic, famously quotable man who realised his dream of turning LFC into English football's most dominant force, Shankly's spirit has quite rightly been stitched into the very fabric of the club.
The Scot took charge of a Second Division outfit that had been starved of success on December 1, 1959, and set about laying the foundations that would see three First Division titles, one Division Two title, two FA Cups and one UEFA Cup claimed during his time in charge. But it is the contributions beyond simply putting trophies in the cabinet that secured Shankly's untouchable Anfield legacy.
From founding the mythical Boot Room to revitalising the club’s training facility at Melwood – his influence remained evident in the unforgettable period of success that followed under Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Kenny Dalglish.
Although the conditions for even greater victories were in place by the time Shankly announced his retirement in July 1974, Kopites were truly devastated to hear of the departure of their magnetic leader. In true Shanks fashion, though, he slipped quietly away safe in the knowledge he had set Liverpool FC on the path to greatness.
In this iconic image, you have Shankly surveying his players in training.
Twenty trophies in nine seasons - not bad for a man who was loath to make the step into football management.
But then, that was the reluctant genius that was Bob Paisley, the manager given the unenviable task of succeeding the legendary Bill Shankly.
A humble son of the North East, Paisley was always more at ease in the wings rather than centre stage, but when it came to knowledge of the game and the ability to spot a player, his record spoke volumes.
Kenny Dalglish, Alan Hansen, Graeme Souness, Alan Kennedy, Ronnie Whelan, Ian Rush and Mark Lawrenson were just some of the players brought to Anfield during Paisley's time in charge and each went on to cement themselves as Liverpool legends.
In the process, three European Cups, six league championships, three League Cups and one UEFA Cup were added to the Anfield honours board.
Paisley's achievements in such a short period in charge at Liverpool cannot be overstated, nor will they ever be eclipsed and he is quite rightly recognised as one of the greatest football managers of all-time.

Kenny Dalglish - a Liverpool legend both as a player and manager.
Dalglish replaced Joe Fagan in the 1980s, initially combining the roles of playing and managing.
Dalglish was the last of the great Boot Room Liverpool managers - in his first spell he led the team to the league and FA Cup double in his first season. He won the First Division twice more with Liverpool and the FA Cup one more time.
In his second spell as manager, Dalglish led Liverpool to the 2012 League Cup.
