Quinn: “Dalglish deserves knighthood”

Mickey Quinn believes Kenny Dalglish deserves a knighthood for his actions following the Hillsborough disaster, reports Talksport.

Steve Rotheram – the MP for Liverpool Walton – has tabled an Early Day Motion in a bid to have the former Liverpool manager recognised for his commitment to finding out the real truth of what happened back in 1989.

Dalglish attended every funeral of the 96 who so tragically lost their lives, and is a regular attendee at the yearly vigil held at Anfield.

And former Newcastle player turned pundit Micky Quinn, believes the Scot deserves a knighthood for his commitment to the ‘Justice for the 96’ campaign.

“Kenny Dalglish went to every single funeral after the Hillsborough disaster,” he said.

“That’s 96 funerals. He should be knighted because he went well beyond the call of duty for a football manager.

“Liverpool football club have given their support to the families and the ‘Justice for the 96’ campaign. They’ve had the vigils every year to help the families that have struggled for 23 years.”

Dalglish has himself spoken on the recent findings, hoping that justice will follow the truth.

“The events of yesterday means the dignified search for justice has been given a platform to build on,” Dalglish, who attended Wednesday’s vigil in memory of the 96, said. “The sad thing is that 41 of the victims could have been saved and for their families there was obviously great upset.

“The Prime Minister spoke very well, and MPs Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram have done a fantastic job at getting the release of the papers brought forward, while great credit should also go to the panel when you consider how much information they had to work through.

“The aims remain the same for the families and their search to see justice done goes on. A start would be for the death certificates and the coroner’s report to be changed from accidental death to unlawful killing.”
