Liverpool legend Sir Kenny Dalglish has tested positive for coronavirus and is in hospital but is showing no symptoms, his family have announced.
Dalglish was admitted to hospital on Wednesday for treatment of an infection which required intravenous antibiotics.
The 69-year-old former Celtic and Scotland forward was routinely tested for coronavirus after being admitted.
“Unexpectedly, the test result was positive but he remains asymptomatic,” the Dalglish family said.
Dalglish won the Scottish league title four times at Celtic before moving to Liverpool in 1977. At Liverpool his honours included eight league Championships as a player and manager and three European Cups.
He also won the Premier League as Blackburn Rovers manager in 1995.
Former Reds skipper Gerrard, now manager of Glasgow Rangers, posted a picture to his Instagram page of Sir Kenny with one of his daughters, with the message: “Get well soon king”
