Former Liverpool and Scotland forward Ian St John has died at the age of 82 after illness.
Liverpool confirmed the news with a statement from his family.
St John played 425 games for Bill Shankly’s Anfield side, scoring 118 goals, in a decade’s service after joining from hometown team Motherwell in 1961 for a club record £37,500.
He won two top-flight titles and scored the decisive goal as Liverpool lifted their first FA Cup in 1965.
The St John family’s statement said: “It is with a heavy heart that we have to inform you that after a long illness we have lost a husband, father and grandfather.
“He passed away peacefully with his family at his bedside. We would like to thank all the staff at Arrowe Park Hospital for their hard work and dedication during these very difficult times.”
