Legend is a word bandied about all too often in football circles these days.

There is no doubt that Kenneth Mathieson Dalglish deserves that accolade. Oh for someone of that calibre in the Scottish international team today.

30 goals in 102 appearances for Scotland. 230 in 559 appearances for Celtic and Liverpool. All done over four decades. Pure quality.

King Kenny turns 60 today and AFTN wants to pay tribute to the great man.

Some of you may be too young to remember him as a player. He was one of my footballing heroes growing up and this video compilation shows why (sorry that it has such shit music!):

He may be 60 now but he's still showing he has the football knowledge to perform at the highest level and has transformed Liverpool since he replaced Roy Hodgson.

Have a great day Kenny and we'll leave you with one of our favourite football songs. "Sharp As A Needle" by Barmy Army was released in 1988. Taking it's name from a line in a radio commentary about King Kenny, it's a fitting tribute in itself. Enjoy...
