Kevin Keegan was in fact signed as a promising right sided midfield player with about a 1in6 goal ratio with Scunthorpe. It was Shankly who noticed in training matches etc that Keegan had the dynamic energy and drive that would enable him to play up front.
And what a masterstroke it was as Keegan helped the club win the First Division titles, FA Cup, the Uefa Cup and our first European Cup in '77. A fantastic player and he was as instrumental in making that transformation from the great 60's team to the great 70's team.
Amazing player in his own right and deserves nothing but praise from all Liverpool fans....oh and happy birthday Kev..
