Rochdale remembers Bill Shankly, died 29th September 1981

One of Scotland's greatest football managers died today in 1981. Bill Shankly .OBE - or 'Shanks' as he was known - was most famous for his management of a Liverpool football team the late 1950s until his retirement in 1974.

A tough, determined boss with an insatiable will to see his team both play well and win, Shankly was also noted for his sense of humour.

Upon being asked if it was true that he had taken his wife to see a football game as a wedding anniversary present, he replied: "Of course I didn't take my wife to see Rochdale as an anniversary present - it was her birthday."

Perhaps the line relished most in this neck of the woods is ... "Aye Man United and Man City at the Bottom of Division 1 ... and they'll teck some shiftin'"
