50 Men Who Made LFC: Ronnie Moran

A dedicated one-club man, Ronnie Moran fulfilled almost every role possible at Anfield during an unbroken association with Liverpool that spanned half a century.

Whether it be as captain, coach or caretaker manager, the best interests of LFC were all that ever mattered to him.

He was just 15 when he began playing C-team football for the Reds and the exemplary attitude he showed then stayed with him throughout his time here.

A sturdy and reliable full-back, Moran spent the majority of his playing career in Division Two but won a First Division championship medal in 1964 and went on to achieve even greater recognition as a loyal inhabitant of the Boot Room.

Starting out with the Reserves, it wasn’t long before he was moved up to work with the first team, whom he twice took control of on a brief caretaker basis.

A renowned stickler for discipline, he worked the players hard on the training pitch but at the same time commanded their utmost respect and was a massive influence on the careers of so many.
