No-one has played more games for Liverpool than Ian Callaghan. Chances are, no one ever will.
Cally wore a Liver bird on his chest a remarkable 857 times during 18 years at the club. There can be no better role model for aspiring footballers than a midfielder who represented everything that's good about the game.
A true gentleman in every sense of the word, the Toxteth boy was the only player to survive Liverpool's fairytale journey from life as a mediocre Second Division outfit to the lofty summit of European football.
Along the way he won almost every honour possible – not least the World Cup – as well as the respect of his fellow professionals and adulation from the fans - and he was booked just once in the meantime.
Callaghan spent 19 seasons in the Liverpool first team, starting out as a winger then moving seamlessly to central midfield, before bringing his Reds career to a close in 1978. He left Anfield with an envious medal collection, a glowing reputation and a total number of appearances that is unlikely to ever be surpassed. Who said nice guys don't win?
