Rovers legend Kenny Dalglish is now Sir Kenny Dalglish after being knighted in the Queen's Birthday Honours list on Friday.

Dalglish, who led Rovers to the Premier League title in 1994-95 after winning the Second Division via the play-offs in 1991-92 in his first season in charge at Rovers.

He was also recognised for supporting the victims of Hillsborough and his tremendous work for charity.

"I thought it was a tax bill," Dalglish told BBC Radio Merseyside. "For the family, it's a huge honour."

"It won't make any difference to me, I'll just maybe need to change my passport!

"But just because we're a wee bit embarrassed about it doesn't underestimate how pleased and proud we are to have received it.

"I hope everyone who came into our lives enjoys it as well."

Congratulations, Sir Kenny, it's richly deserved!

And a certain former Rovers player was quick to have his say on Sir Kenny's recognition...
