The Reds' former manager Bob Paisley spent a then-record £440,000 to acquire him from Celtic in 1977. He was brought in to replace Kevin Keegan, who had recently left the striker position. A fan favorite and crucial player, he helped the team win five league titles, four League Cups, and three European Cups under Paisley and Paisley's replacement, Joe Fagan, and was dubbed "King Kenny" as a result.
Dalglish took over as player-manager after Fagan retired in May 1985, only hours before the Heysel stadium disaster. Yet, the next season, he guided Liverpool to a Double despite the tragedy that had marked his debut. After that, they went on to win the league in 1988 and 1990 and the FA Cup in 1989. Nevertheless, the Hillsborough disaster occurred shortly after, killing 96 people, many of whom were Liverpool fans.
Dalglish quit as manager less than two years later, evidently feeling the repercussions of Heysel and Hillsborough in addition to the rigors of management. Yet, eight months later, he was back on the sidelines, this time for Blackburn, and he led the club to its first league title since 1914 by guiding them to the Premier League championship from the Second Division.
He then spent 1997–1998 with Newcastle United and 1999–2000 with Celtic before making his way back to Anfield in 2009 in the role of club ambassador. In June of 2010, he was a front-runner to succeed Rafa Benitez, but Roy Hodgson ended up getting the position. However, Dalglish returned as manager in January 2011, and Hodgson lasted only half a season before being fired.
