Former Liverpool captain, coach and caretaker manager Ronnie Moran will be remembered as a "legendary figure" akin to the great Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley, according to ex-Reds defender Jamie Carragher.

Ex-Liverpool midfielder Luis Garcia also took a moment to pay tribute to the man that he admitted "couldn't be far from the pitch where he belonged", while current defender Jon Flanagan, now on loan at Burnley, added: "Gutted to hear that Ronnie Moran has passed away". Former manager Roy Evans wrote: It was a privilege to have Ronnie by my side throughout my career sharing many great memories that will never be forgotten. Gave me some great advice over the years.

"It was impressive because the players were immediately in the mood; all of them have heard about him and that shows how special his relationship with this great club was". "All of our thoughts and all of our love is with the family".

Liverpool captain Henderson expressed sadness on behalf of the current squad and vowed to make Moran proud.

"We were fortunate to have some really big characters on the coaching staff - Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Ronnie Moran".

"Liverpool Football Club is deeply saddened by the passing of Ronnie Moran", a statement from the club said.

Jamie Carragher was among a host of ex-Reds to quickly pay tribute to "Bugsy" Moran, hailing him as a "legendary figure" who taught "an terrible lot" to those looking to forge their careers at one of European football's historically most successful clubs.
