Former Liverpool star and TV pundit Ian St John has died aged 82.

Liverpool FC wrote on its Twitter page: “We are deeply saddened by the passing of a true Anfield legend, Ian St John.

“The thoughts of everyone at Liverpool Football Club are with Ian’s family and friends at this sad and difficult time. Rest in peace, Ian St John 1938-2021.”

A key member of Bill Shankly’s famous 1960s side, he made 425 appearances for the Reds and scored 118 goals.

St John won two first division titles under his fellow Scot and scored the winning goal in the 1965 FA Cup final.

After retiring in 1973, he went on to manage his hometown club, Motherwell, and Portsmouth.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher said on Twitter: “RIP Ian St John. Another Liverpool Legend sadly passes away.

“One of the players along with Bill Shankly who made this club what it is today. I’ll remember him most on the best football show on TV, The Saint & Greavsie. X.”
