COVID-19: Sir Kenny Dalglish leaves hospital

Liverpool legend Sir Kenny Dalglish has been released from hospital following his diagnosis with COVID-19 earlier in the week.

The 69-year-old was admitted to hospital on Wednesday for treatment of an infection that required intravenous antibiotic treatment.

Throughout his time in hospital he was routinely tested for COVID-19. Despite having shown no symptoms, Dalglish did in fact test positive.

The Liverpool legend is now at home recovering in self-isolation.

“People may think my name got me the best of care but every patient in the NHS gets the best of care,” Dalglish told The Sunday Post.

“As a nation, we are lucky to have them and I wish them all well as they work tirelessly to help the country through this pandemic.”

Sir Kenny thanks NHS for marvellous treatment

Dalglish had quite the career in football, winning the Scottish league title with Celtic four times before making the move south to Liverpool in 1977.

He also went on to become a managerial legend. In 1989, he was the manager of Liverpool when 96 fans sadly perished at the Hillsborough disaster.

He then went on to manage Blackburn and lead them to one of the greatest stories in Premier League history as his side of underdogs won the league in 1995.

He is a true legend of the game, and a true legend at all of the teams he represented. We’re all very pleased to hear his condition is improving and he is at home resting. Get well soon, Sir Kenny.
