Tributes have been pouring in from players past and present after it was announced that former Liverpool keeper Ray Clemence has passed away aged 72.
Former Liverpool player John Aldridge posted his on twitter with a picture of Clemence’s mural which was recently created.
And the FA have retweeted a tribute by the England football team, for whom Clemence made 61 appearances over 11 years from 1972-1983, then staying with the national team as a goalkeeper coach.
The FA are planning to pay tribute to the former keeper ahead of their UEFA Nations League match against Iceland at Wembley on Wednesday.
Liverpool FC posted their own tribute on social media with a link to the statement from the Clemence family, paying tribute to a player who played 470 times for the reds.
Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has also paid tribute saying “We should never forget it is great players who make great teams and clubs.”
