A central defender, who arrived at Anfield as a former England Under-21 international, Richard Money had acquired a good reputation in the lower leagues with Scunthorpe and Fulham, for whom he had appeared in close to 300 league matches, despite being only 24-years-old when he signed for Liverpool.
Even though 1980-81 was a season when Liverpool's league form was erratic, a final placing of fifth compared with first in the two previous seasons, Richard was unable to break through as a first-team regular and made only 14 First Division appearances. Although his Liverpool career was but a brief one, he could at least claim to be part of one of the most famous nights in Liverpool’s European history when he played in the memorable 1-1 draw against Bayern in Munich’s Olympic Stadium, a result that took the club through against all the odds to their third European Cup final in five seasons.
Richard went on loan to Derby County for a short time the following season before signing permanently for Luton Town. A spell at Portsmouth followed before he returned to Scunthorpe, the club where he had started his playing career. Money later became Scunthorpe's manager, also having managed AIK and Vasteras in Sweden, Australia's Newcastle United Jets and Walsall. In the summer of 2008 he was hired as the director of Newcastle United's academy.
