Kenny Dalglish has shared his pride after becoming a Sir today.
The Scottish football legend was this morning awarded his knighthood by Prince Charles for his services to football, charity and the city of Liverpool.
The news of that award broke earlier in the year, but today it was made official at a ceremony in Buckingham Palace.
And after becoming Sir Kenny, Dalglish spoke of his pride at the award:

Dalglish has been used to a big title like that considering Liverpool fans refer to him as King Kenny for his achievements as a player and manager for them in the past.
But this official title recognises arguably Scotland’s best ever player, who appeared 102 times for his country while starring for both Celtic and Liverpool throughout his career.
He also managed a number of clubs, most notably Liverpool – leading them to three league titles and two FA Cups as well as a League Cup in 2012.
And Dalglish has been an integral part in the fight for justice for those who lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster and their families.
