Geoff Strong can lay claim to being the most versatile player ever to represent the Reds, having featured in practically every position other than goalkeeper during his six years on Merseyside.
The Englishman had thrived as a goalscoring forward with Arsenal - twice scoring against Liverpool for the Gunners at Anfield - before Bill Shankly swooped to sign him in November 1964.
Strong was used intermittently during the remainder of the 1964-65 campaign but an injury to Gordon Milne afforded him the opportunity to play and contribute in the FA Cup final victory over Leeds.
He also completed both legs of the European Cup semi-final against Inter Milan, concluding his first season as a Liverpool player with a respectable 16 appearances and three goals.
Already a popular figure on the Kop because of his determined tackling, eye for a goal and natural footballing ability, Strong's landmark moment in a Liverpool shirt arrived during the 1965-66 season.
With the Reds requiring another goal to overcome Celtic and book their place in the 1966 Cup Winners' Cup final, Geoff shook off a leg injury to connect with an Ian Callaghan cross and powerfully head home.
He clocked up enough appearances during that season to qualify for a league winner's medal as the Reds claimed championship honours, then continued to provide cover in Shankly's fine squad of the late 1960s.
A disappointing FA Cup quarter-final defeat by Watford in February 1970 convinced Shankly to break up the team at his disposal and create the second great side of his tenure - with Strong among those deemed surplus to requirements.
The jack-of-all-trades left Anfield to join Coventry later that year having played 201 games for Liverpool and found the back of the net an impressive 33 times.
Appearances: 201 Goals: 33 Honours with LFC: 1 First Division title (1965-66), 1 FA Cup (1964-65) Did you know? Bill Shankly's challenging training regime made Strong physically sick during his first days at Melwood Where is he now? Passed away in 2013
