Sir Kenny Dalglish: "I think it's right to use the word 'icon'... I'm sure he knew that when he was here, the club really appreciated and revered him for what he did for us."

Steven Gerrard: "He's an iconic figure at Liverpool Football Club. He's someone I'd met on numerous occasions and he's a fantastic guy.

I'd like to send my condolences to his family. He's someone I've got incredible respect for."

Roy Evans: "It's really sad news. Ian was one of our greats, that's for sure. I joined Liverpool at the age of 15 in 1964 and the team were starting to grow under Shanks. Even in my early days, when I was in the A and B team, Ian would talk to you. He would try to help me and do things for you. He was a great guy.
"He was such a great character, good fun, good laugh - but don't get on the wrong side of him! If you got on the wrong side of him he'd be on your case, that's for sure! Winning the FA Cup for the first time in 1965 was like when we won the Premier League last year. It was so special and for Ian to get the winner was brilliant for him and for us as supporters."
So sad to hear of the passing of the Saint. He gave me one of my greatest childhood memories in him winning the FA… https://t.co/07mhSYrtgx— Phil_Thompson4 (Phil Thompson) 2nd Mar 09:44

Chris Lawler: "What a competitor. He is one of the best players we have ever had at this football club. I used to joke with him about his winning goal in the 1965 FA Cup final. I said: 'Why did you stoop that low to head the ball? You could have just headed it normally!' What a moment that was to win the FA Cup. That was such a special day for us all, to be part of the first Liverpool team to win the FA Cup. I will miss my friend and send all my best to his family."
