Liverpool have added the ‘Sir’ to the Kenny Dalglish Stand at Anfield after the club legend was knighted by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.

The Scot was recently recognised for his outstanding career on and off the pitch in which he won three European Cups in seven years with Liverpool.

As a manager Dalglish earned top-flight league championship titles with the Anfield club and Blackburn Rovers.

While his off-field heroics include supporting the families of the Hillsborough disaster and his charity work with his wife Marina, which has raised more than £10million.

On Tuesday Liverpool got to work adding the ‘Sir’ in front of Dalglish’s name emblazoned on the wall outside his stand.

The first game the lettering will be on show to football fans is when Liverpool host Everton in the Merseyside derby on December 2.

Dalglish admitted his initial confusion after receiving a letter announcing his knighthood, saying he thought it was from the taxman.

"I got a letter through the door. I thought it was the taxman," said the Scot.
