Rated by many as the greatest Liverpool goalkeeper of all-time, Ray Clemence was undoubtedly the leader in his field in Europe during the 1970s and one of the key factors in the Reds' unstoppable march to glory during a success-strewn Anfield decade.

An unflappable, assured presence between the sticks, he possessed the safest hands in the game and inspired confidence in those around him.

Among his key attributes were concentration, sense of anticipation, positional awareness and lightning-quick reactions.

With Clem in goal, errors were rarer than a Reds defeat. Clean sheets became a common occurrence and defensive records tumbled as a result.

During his 11 years in the first team he missed just six league matches, won almost every major honour in the game and displayed a high level of consistency that no Reds 'keeper has since been able to match.

Debate will forever rage as to whether Clemence was the greatest but based on his ratio of goals conceded and clean sheets kept, he has no equal between the Anfield sticks.
