Premier League campaigners Liverpool have announced the death of their former goalkeeper Tommy Lawrence
The Scotsman was Bill Shankley's first choice goalkeeper in the 1960s and made 390 appearances for the club over 14 years.
He only missed four League matches in six seasons as the Reds won the First Division Championship twice and claimed the FA Cup for the first time.
The former Liverpool goalie won two League titles at Anfield while pioneering the sweeper-keeper style of play and was also part of the team which won their first ever FA Cup in 1965.
Lawrence also won three caps for Scotland and shocked viewers of the BBC three years ago as he unexpectedly cropped up previewing the Merseyside derby.
Liverpool confirmed the demise of Tommy Lawrence via their official Twitter handle on Wednesday, January 10.
Meanwhile, Premier League club Liverpool presently occupy fourth position on the League standings with 44 points after 22 games played.
The Anfield club will face leaders Manchester City on Sunday, January 14 in their next Premier League encounter.
