Just 48 hours after witnessing Liverpool score another dramatic late winner against Nottingham Forest, Liverpool Legend, Sir Kenny Dalglish, is celebrating once again, as today is his 73rd Birthday.

The former player and manager regularly attends Liverpool games - both home and away, and was most recently seen celebrating the Reds victory in the Carabao Cup at Wembley.

Today, however, he will be celebrating privately with his wife Marina, and their four children and grandchildren, although knowing how passionate he is about football and Liverpool in particular, I'm sure there has been plenty of talk about the Reds and their incredible season around the dinner table.

Despite his age, Sir Kenny remains an active part of the Liverpool hierarchy, and a club ambassador, as well as working on behalf of numerous charities.

Today, however, we think he should take a break and put his feet up with a nice glass of red!  He has definitely earned it!
