Former Liverpool captain and coach Ronnie Moran has died at the age of 83.

His son confirmed his death on Wednesday, stating Moran passed away after losing his battle with a “short illness” this morning.

Moran played for Liverpool from 1952 to 1966 and made 379 appearances for the Reds. He then went on to work for the Merseyside club as a coach from 1966 until 1998 when he retired.

The local lad won an incredible 44 trophies during his time at Anfield -- seven as a player -- making him a Liverpool legend as he was also 11 league titles and four European cups as a coach and worked under the likes of Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley and Graeme Souness.

Tributes have poured in for Moran as he had a huge say on the careers of many of Liverpool’s greatest players.
