LIVERPOOL legend Sir Kenny Dalglish has expressed “immense gratitude” to the National Health Service (NHS) staff after returning home from the hospital following his coronavirus diagnosis.
Dalglish, 69, former Celtic, Scotland and Liverpool forward was admitted to hospital on Wednesday for treatment of an infection which requited intravenous antibiotics tested positive for COVID-19.
Dalglish won the Scottish league title four times at Celtic before moving to Liverpool in 1977. At Anfield his honours included eight league championships as a player and manager and three European Cups.
In a statement on Liverpool’s official website, Dalglish said: “Thank you for all of your well wishes over the last few days. I’m delighted to be back home with the family after receiving brilliant care from the NHS, which we appreciate now more than ever.”
The former Celtic and Scotland forward is now recovering in self-isolation at home and urged the public to do everything possible to slow the spread of the virus.
